as you want it

Directed by Clara Kasten

In their home cinema, Tony has all the films that have ever been made – in fact, they have every film you could possibly ever imagine. Every night will have a new film be made up right in front of the audience’s eyes, based on their suggestions. They script written at the same time the lines are said, music composed at the same time it is being played, lights programmed at the same time they are being employed.

Guiding us through the film is Tony, remote control in hand, skipping forwards or backwards, introducing flashbacks, songs or slow motions, and providing insightful commentary on the actor’s and director’s choices we see before us.

The last University Players production played 16 | 18 | 19 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 January 2023 at the audimax of the university of hamburg. „as you want it“ was a fast-paced, fun and entirely unpredictable Improv Show that provided audiences with plenty of laughter, awe and some heartbreak.
