MONTREAL, December 12th, 2017 – Newly minted improv duo consisting of Vinny Francois and Jen Viens is proud to announce the presentation of their inaugural long-format improvised comedy/wilderness adventure, “i think we’re lost“, at Montreal Improv Theatre on January 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th, 2018. The duo is very excited to announce that the performances on the 12th, 19th, and 26th, will feature sign language interpretation by Jordan Goldman.
i think we’re lost follows the saga of Hashtag and Chrispopher (with two p’s). These two care more about how they appear than anything else. Constantly in search of the next trend, these city-folk set off on an adventure in the woods to experience #nature. What starts out as the innocent pursuit of forest selfies takes an unexpected turn and they discover that no amount of coconut water can save them from each other or, worse, themselves.
About the improvisers
Vinny Francois has over 20 years of experience as a professional improviser and is an award-winning instructor. A founding director of the Montreal Improv Theatre, he has performed in more shows and venues across Canada than he cares to count. He also is Executive Producer of Mprov: The Montreal Improv Festival.
Jen Viens is an actor, director and improviser with over ten years of experience on stage and screen. Originally from BC, she is an alumnus of Black Theatre Workshop’s Artist Mentorship Program. In 2016, she performed the one-woman show ‘The Passage’ at the Montreal Fringe and took home the award for Best Solo Production. Most recently, she co-founded the production company ‘Stone Lane Studio’, and starred in its inaugural film ‘Love Sylvia’.
About the interpreter
Jordan Goldman was first welcomed into the Deaf community in 2008; he’s been absorbing ASL ever since. He began working as an ASL-English interpreter after earning his diploma in Sign Language Interpretation from Douglas College (in BC) in 2013. Jordan is an active member of the Association of Visual Language Interpreters of Canada.
