Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand

Hellos, goodbyes, joy, comfort... we all join into the human experience which is hugging on a daily basis. But what are the etiquettes? What are the faux pas? What types of hugs are there? A group of world class improvisers take the stage to present HugProv! An entirely improvised comedy show based on wrapping our arms around each other with love. Each scene starts and ends with a hug and the improvisers will seamlessly change into a multitude of characters with unique stories right before your eyes.
This show was born out of a recent time when people were told to stop hugging each other and one avid hugging enthusiast was forced to think about what hugging means. Now that we can hug again... we decided to make a comedy show all about it. Guaranteed to make you feel good. The show itself will have you leaving as if you just had a big warm hug yourself.
