Jubilant scenes and silliness straight to your screens. Virtually There celebrates the joys and absurdities of video calls. Hosted by Steven Lyons (Chicago improv alum and NZ Comedy Guild nominated Best MC 2019) you can kick back from the comfort of your own home as improvisers from around New Zealand and the world take you on an unpredictable adventure. Easy to watch on Facebook Live - scenes are inspired by chat suggestions and ‘lols', 'smiley faces' and 'hearts' are most welcome. We are virtually there already!
Paper Goat is a social enterprise that creates opportunities for Nz performers to develop their craft and give audiences greater access to creative engaging performances. It was founded in 2018 by Steven Lyons after returning from living and performing in the USA for 7 years. Steven's goal is to find ways to share comedy , theatre and art with local communities. To make fun and interactive ways of supporting, consuming and creating all manner of theatre and art.
