A Special Event like no other! Et Compagnie with Nashville Improv!
Wednesday March 14th, 7pm
Direct from Lyon, France...Et Compagnie is a dazzling mix of improv comedy, mime-work, and emotional connection that will make you fall in love with theater all over again.
Performing in both French and English, they break the language barrier with their deep character work, audacious physicality, and quick transitions.
Et Compagnie is watching a Jean-Luc Godard movie starring Marcel Marceau and Jerry Lewis. Whether they're recapping the human lives of recently zombified people in a Walking Dead pastiche, or getting hit by a bus in super slow-motion, they do it all with grace personified.
You'll swear it couldn't be improvised, and then you'll just swear...repeatedly under your breath as they do the impossible again and again.
Et Compagnie. Just say Oui Wednesday March 14th.
Special Movement Workshop!
Tuesday March 13th, 7pm-9pm
There are many ways to create a character, and many ways to lose them.
The more the point of origin for your character comes from outside (a story, a relationship, an accent…), the more you are likely to let go of some of its traits during a scene. But is there a way to give your character an anchoring point so that whatever happens you can get it back at a moment’s notice?
The story, relations and events are not yours; but your body is. Use it to your advantage!
There are methods I researched and experienced to create a character though body posture, movements and rhythms. With practice and observation, it is possible to come up with the basis for whatever persona you may need. It is possible to use this work to make up a character that is expected (the situation demands that you play a high and mighty duke or a nervous bride-to-be, for instance) or surprise yourself and the audience with an instant creation.
Create a body, live with it and it will bring truthful reactions to whatever is thrown at you.
Improv or stage performance experience is required for this class.
Space is very limited, please book your space to ensure a spot

The sports show of all show, the drama, the sportsmanship, the medals! Our DVR's are filled with recaps of an exciting sports show, and we have spent our entire lives studying all aspects of this epic event. Come see an improvised version unlike any other.
At this show YOU are the judge, there will be winners, losers and most of all points (that don't really matter) as individual improvisers go head-to-head in a memorable show never to be repeated (for the next 2 years at least).
Nashville Improv has been entertaining audiences with their unique brand of musical and pop-culture infused comedy nationwide. They're bringing the best of improv, music & theater into the 21st century, recently being featured on Hidden America with Jonah Ray, and past performances with Laura Hall from Whose Line is it Anyway, Kevin McDonald from Kids in the Hall, on Comedy Centrals Drunk History, Chicago Improv Festival, Spontaneous Combustion, Gatlinburg Improv Fest and more, all while selling out shows consistently.

The best selling improv show in the heart of Nashville for over 5 years. This year is going to be extra special, musical and filled with joy. This is the Valentine event for you, no matter if you're dating, single, married or ‘it’s complicated’.

Singles Awareness Celebration!

Not all of us have committed relationships, and that's great! If you do, you're welcome as well, as this show is all about improvised empowerment. This show is a lot of fun and a great way to kick your late night Valentines Day party of right. We'll take you through the ups and downs of single life. Lean Cuisines, growing a beard, hookups, OKCupid, and the empowered awesome person who is you.
Bring yourself, your best friend, lover, and that cool guy or girl hanging out downstairs at the coffee shop. This show is going to make some memories.
Both shows are incredible and you can get your tickets here!
