Improvised Sketch Show // Big Fire (Athenaeum Theater - Studio One)

Athenaeum Theater (Studio 1) $15

2936 N Southport AVE Chicago, IL 60657

Improvised Sketch Show: 

Come see a new format where a team of sketch/improv performers take premises from the audience and try to write out a full length sketch show BEFORE YOUR EYES. Performers will only have 7 minutes after getting the sketches to quickly make them up and perform them for YOU, THE AUDIENCE!

Big Fire: 

Josh Levine and Devin Sanclemente graduated iO Chicago's improvisation program as previously trained actors from the eastern coast. BIG FIRE! brings an emotionally gratifying, improvised experience that is unspeakably hilarious, delightful, and shocking. Between candid, vaudevillian theatrics and honest, gritty scene work, BIG FIRE! showcases the space between those ideas in an absurdist theatrical style; a hallmark of their performances. These non-traditional "transitions" have been seen as improvised spoken word performances, songs, and even movement pieces. With each show, BIG FIRE!'s unique and renowned form evolves more and more, surprising audiences with new kinds of performances to improvise. Hey, you could say it spreads like fire.
