The Atlantic Magazine’s City Lab project called the debate over affordable housing in the Twin Cities the fiercest housing battle in America. So what better place to flesh it out than an improv comedy show? Three brilliant individuals on the front lines of this work join us to discuss how housing policy is changing in Minnesota and beyond, for better and for worse.
Doors at 6:00 - Show at 7:00 - $12/$10 in advance, with student ID, with Fringe button or for seniors. BUY TICKETS HERE!
What is the show?
Our interview based show is a powerful medium for exploring issues and bringing them to life using theater. All of the ideas and challenges brought up in this conversation serve as the inspiration for the improvised scenes to follow. The improvisers tasks are not to make light of the issues or mock the players involved. Instead, scenes make the previous conversation come to life with living, breathing characters in the situations described. It’s a show unlike any other.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
