Galapagos was formed in the Fall of 2003 and is devoted to performing longform improvisation based in strong ensemble work and characters & scenes rooted in truth. Our improvisation is often in the form of Harold, a structure and philosophy of improv pioneered by Del Close & The Committee in San Francisco and further developed by Del Close & Charna Halpern at ImprovOlympic in Chicago (now called iO), the Deconstruction, the Armando, and include longform structures that we have developed ourselves such as Quiet Desperation, The Rubik’s Cube, The Cassette, and Liquid Metal. Whatever the specific form is, a single audience suggestion serves to inspire our explorations.
