Three falling is an Israeli group of 4 professional actors and a DJ. Muli Shulman, Roy Tzadok, Alon Neuman and Inbal Lori are working for TV, theater and Movies and are improvising for the last 20 years. Their show has no rules and no pre decided style. as they get up on stage they follow a story with one main narrative. Three Falling like to use their Middle Eastern temperament which means using rapid changes, multiple characters, flashbacks, fast dialogues and often violence. they use their acting skills to create believable. true moments and their impro skills to create the magic of going into the unknown. No parachutes. No safety net. Just free falling
Three Falling

The show builds rapidly and culminates in a series of surprising and organic callbacks done through the unique editing styling and story telling of this Boston super-team. This is a high-energy improv experience that redefines itself with every performance. Cast is Will Luera, Sara Burns, Micah Whitaker, Pat Parhiala, and Rachel Rosenthal

As an LGBTQ+ improv collective Rainbow Warriors stand for: label us all you want, just don’t stop with one label. As we believe all labels together create the person that you are. Plus, how great is it to play on stage with labels, stereotypes and prejudices? Rainbow Warriors debuted as a team about four years back and thanks to their stage connection they became Dutch National Theatersports Champions pretty much the first time they were on stage together. Is there a gay gene after all? Is it Sense8? Who knows!
