Improv Power Play : Canada/Sweden

Unknown - Confirmed: May. 2, 2008 (Awaiting Update)
Sweden and Canada are two of the most passionate hockey nations in the world (with many Swedish nationals playing on NHL teams and making a major impact on the Vancouver Canucks). Teams of ingenious improvisers from Sweden and Canada face off in four ‘periods’ of improv play in this pre-season warm-up for a major presentation in 2009. The brainchild of Mats Gustafsson (Sweden) and François Houle (Canada), the completed works will feature composed pieces based on the systems and culture of ice hockey. This will be the first meeting for most of the players on the two proposed teams. As Mats puts it, “let’s throw a few pucks on the ice and see what happens!” Tre Kroner (Sweden): Magnus Broo trumpet, Raymond Strid drums, Per Ake Holmlander tuba, Kjell Nordeson percussion, and Mats Gustafsson sax. Team Canada: Dylan van der Schyff drums, John Korsrud trumpet, Torsten Müller bass, Peggy Lee cello, Jesse Zubot violin, and François Houle clarinet.
