Momentos de la Vida! blends together improvisational storytelling and photography. Rich in the texture of black and white imagery. Engaging, uplifting, tender and joyous.
This format was created by Patti Stiles with Secret Impro Theatre. Patti wanted to explore a show that stimulated the imagination of the improvisors differently and did not rely on language as the starting offer. Momentos de la Vida means Moments of Life. A photographer has a moment in which they see and then capture that image or moment. We, performers and audience, all share a moment as we first see this image and then watch the moment to moment of the improvisation scene unfolding. We share a moment together as the photo is brought to life, through improvisation performance. The idea of improvising with photos was first sparked in Patti through an exploration by Jenny Lovell.
Momentos De La Vida has been performed in Melbourne Australia, Rome Italy, Leece Italy, Milan Italy and Bogota Colombia,
