Tissue Based Spaceships: Tissue-Based Spaceships is an improv duo made up of longtime best friends Christopher Conner and Habeeb Khan, based in the Metro East of St. Louis, MO. We have been performing together since our high school production of Tom Stoppard's "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead." Both of us have been in several other improv troupes before, but we are excited for this joint venture of our first “twosie.” We utilize our perspectives as a Filipino-American and Indian-American, respectively, to present a unique long-form performance that appeals to a global audience. We are especially excited for our upcoming journey to participate in India’s first ever Improv Festival. Chris fell in love with India years ago when Habeeb forced him to watch many Bollywood films and Habeeb has not been back to India since he was six years old. Tissue-Based Based Spaceships is ready to share the laughter with the people of this great nation!
The Modern Schemers: They are Singapores longest-running and weirdest improv comedy team. For 40 shows and counting, they will turn your suggestions into hilarious and heartfelt comedy gold!
About the Bengaluru Improv Festival:
The Bengaluru Improv Festival is Indias first Improv Festival. The festival marks Indias entry in the art of Improvisation Theatre. In the space of live & participatory entertainment, Improv is the next big thing. Improvisation not only encapsulates the realm of comedy but goes beyond it, to categorise itself under theatre. India has a thriving Improv potential. BIFs intention is to get all those who practice the art of Improv under one roof. The festival will also see international Improv artists, who will collaborate with us to perform and teach their experienced knowledge about the art. Improvisation has various styles and forms that remain unexplored which will become a discovery to all those who be a part of the festival. We are also bringing about an awareness to our audiences on the different styles of Improv there exists.
