A Summary of Kevin's Improvisation Work

(more details at: www.kevintomlinson.co.uk)


Kevin Tomlinson co-founded Kepow Theatre Company (with Paul Jenkins) in 1991. Since then he has won numerous awards including; the Sunday Times Playwright Award and the Rose Bruford Trust Directors Award.


From 1998 onwards, Kevin's focus has been on masks and improvisation. In New Zealand, The Times called his first improvisation show On The Edge: "excellent...a must see show!". For the past decade Kevin has also worked extensively with Keith Johnstone (author of the book Impro and creator of Theatresports), in Canada and the UK.


In 1999 he performed alongside the cast of Whose Line Is It Anyway? in the Royal Court Theatre show Micestro for charity at the famous Hackney Empire; directed by Keith Johnstone and Phelim McDermott (Improbable Theatre director). In 2002, he took the lead role in Keith's absurdist play Damien at the Garrick Theatre in Calgary (directed by the author).


Kepow's current show Seven Ages (created with Keith's help) received 5 star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival and a standing ovation on the last night. It has since gone on to be seen all over the UK and abroad.
