Jumprov is the UK’s first improv theatre company made up of creatives entirely from Black, Asian & Mixed Race backgrounds. And all seven of the group are from Birmingham.
Their debut show will take place at The Old Joint Stock Theatre located in Birmingham City Centre in May. Audiences will experience a hilarious 90 minute show, made up completely on the spot featuring classic improv games with the Jumprov twist.
Sunny Dhap, founder of the group, said “Jumprov was born straight out of Birmingham Improv Festival. I was there looking at the audiences, the acts and I noticed it was not representative of our diverse city. I decided to start my own improv theatre company which will help tackle the continuing issue of under representation in theatre, TV & film”
The combined CV of Jumprov members includes a graduate of the Birmingham Theatre School, an appearance on BBC’s “Doctors” and multiple winners of Monologue Slams across the UK.
You can see Jumprov perform at The Old Joint Stock Theatre on Thursday 4th May 2017 at 8PM. Tickets £10+BF via Jumprov.com
