Every month The Curator inspired by a different piece of art, chosen and introduced by that month's curator. The curator has five minutes to set the stage for our award-winning cast members, who then take over to create a completely improvised one-act comedy inspired by that work of art.
The Curator is the brainchild of Haligonian improviser Henri Geilis, lovingly adapted by the Bad Dog Theatre Company and featuring a rotating cast including the extraordinary talents of Sean Tabares, Ashley Comeau, Anders Yates, Dan Beirne, Kris Siddiqi, Craig Anderson, Lucy Hill, Daniel Maslany, Hannah Spear, Tess Degenstein, Sarah Hillier, Tom MacKay, Coko Galore, Andrew Bushell, Nicole Passmore, Kirsten Rasmussen, Mark Little & more. Directed by Bad Dog’s Artistic Director Julie Dumais Osborne.
