Murder on the Dance Floor : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Murder on the Dance Floor

A completely improvised show made up with the help of audience suggestion!

See tickets below

Show Details:

This show will be unlike anything you have ever seen before. In fact, it will be unlike anything anyone has seen before! Improvisation is the art of making up theatre on the spot and each night audience suggestions will be transformed into either a musical or a murder mystery with hilarious results.

At the venue, you will be handed a token. This token will allow you to cast your vote for either a musical or a murder mystery. If you come back for a second night, you will receive 10 tokens, and if you come to all three nights, you will have the voting power of 50 tokens.

Will it be a murder mystery? Will it be a musical? No matter which show is chosen, you can guarantee that it will be completely improvised, wacky, and wild. Every night will be an entirely different show, so come along to one, two or all three nights!

Workshop Details: 

For the first time ever, we are hosting an improvisation workshop!

  • Do you want to develop your comedic/improvisation skills?
  • Do you like to think on your feet?
  • Do you want to build confidence?
  • Do you want to just try something new?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you! You don't have to be a performer to do this workshop--the skills you learn in improv translate to all aspects of our lives. And, most importantly, it is just silly silly fun times.

Over two hours, local improviser, Marea Colombo, will teach some basic improv skills and performance techniques. Improv develops your storytelling ability, increases confidence, enhances your listening & communication skills, builds resilience and much more.
