Mysterious Narrative Improv SPOKEN Returns to Unexpected Productions
The night begins with just a few spoken words, and then a whole world is created in Spoken: Improvised Connections, a night of comedy, mystery and improv that tries to determine the ingredients of a single meeting between people. A single scene is played out, then explored through a glimpse into the lives of the character. Like spokes of a wheel, everything is connected to the same center. This intriguing concept shows how even though we live moment-to-moment, they're all connected in some way.
Spoken opens Thursday, August 10th at 8:30 and plays every Thursday until Spet. 28th.
"Spoken is a beautiful form that centers around one moment in time and asks the question, 'How did we get here?'" says Randy Dixon, the show show' creator and director. "Based on that moment the cast creates a series of scenes directly connected to that core scene like the spokes of a wheel. The show has a very personal relationship with the audiences that watch it, as the audience is the true author of this story as they choose how to piece it together."
We live moment to moment but rarely think about all the connections that these moments have to each other.The show explores those moments through improv.
