Meet the Mt Olymprov 2020 instructors: Daniel Orrantia

My practice pushes the boundaries between improvisation and physical theatre, bringing elements of clowning, mime, comics and painting as tools for expression and storytelling. I have been designing workshops and directing shows for different groups and festivals around the world.

As a performer, I have toured the world with Speechless an improvised show without words. I founded and currently run a company called PICNIC, specialized in creating devised work, collaborating with different artists who bring inspiration from diverse areas. Together with this team I founded and direct the MonkeyFest – an anual impro theater festival that happens in Colombia since 2011.

Since the beginning of 2019 I have worked in the development of an interactive improvised show called The Fortune Teller. This project has created new lines of investigation for me, particularly in the interaction with non improviser volunteers.
