Canada's first Parkinson's improv troupe!

(& non-Canadians are welcome, too!)

We are thrilled to collaborate with the Parkinson Society of British Columbia to combine the art of improv with our commitment to health, wellness, and the pursuit of joy! Originally created with Tightrope Theatre, the PD Performance Troupe is entering its 10th season and traveled all the way to Barcelona to perform for a sold-out crowd at the World Parkinson's Congress in the summer of 2023!

 

Those with previous improv experience (or have completed our Improv for Parkinson's Level 1 and 2 programs) are invited to join the Performance Troupe to focus on applying the foundations of improv for performance. In this program, you will develop as part of an ensemble and build skills for two performances. We will dive into techniques, practice games, performance formats, hosting, show shape, and more -- this program is virtual!

Meet the Troupe!
