A brand-new improv comedy show, Oculum, will premiere at PHIT this Friday at 8:00 p.m.
Oculum explores relationships, physicality and time through improv comedy. The cast uses improv and movement to embody the thoughts, feelings and ideas constantly running through our head. You can expect a combination of both grounded, relationship-driven scene work and the silliest fun in physicality to create an hour long improvised show. Oculum is inspired by a form created by Laura Doorneweerd (Amsterdam).
The cast of Oculum is: Yvonne Anderson, Scott Campbell, Wilfredo Diaz, Kate Fruhman, Bobby Hayes, Cindy Heffron, Susan LaPalombara, Kayleigh Liggitt, Annie Paradis, and Jon Plester.
Oculum is directed by Molly Scullion.
Molly shared, “I’m so excited about this show because this cast has made my job so darn easy. It’s different than anything they’ve done before, but they dove right in and have already done some of my favorite improv I’ve ever seen. This show is a lot about emotions and relationships, and having a cast of the kindest people to put on the show makes for some kind of wonderful improvised magic.”
