VHS Presents TONIGHT at 7pm
Angel Yau takes us into the young minds of comedians, filmmakers, and storytellers by watching the videos they made as future struggling artists and telling the stories behind it before. From movie re-enactments to cable access shows to school projects to simply home videos. Each month, four storytellers get to show videos they worked hard on pre-youtube days and reflect on how they’ve grown today. Featuring TBA
NIGHT OF IMPROV
All 5 Disciplines TONIGHT at 9pm
Our very first Multi-Disciplinary Night of Improv! Leading through Lit, Music, Dance and Comedy, come see some of the city’s best strut their very talented, unscripted stuff! This is what we love to do and it’s why we love to do it! “The thing about improvisation is that it’s not about what you say. It’s listening to what other people say. It’s about what you hear.” -Paul Merton
Jansen & Holm make dances that are imaginative, spacious, and humane. Their work roots itself in an experiential understanding of the human condition, and uses image and metaphor to speak to a shared visceral truth. Their body-centered research includes gesture, spoken word, vocal music, and costume design, as well as pressing against the limits of dance technique.
On Krista Jansen and CJ Holm amazing work ethic.
