LAUNCHPAD: Now How Come That Wouldn’t Work? + Set Piece + Soundbite + Interview
September 15, 2019
One intimate stage—limitless possibilities. WIT runs wild at DC Arts Center for a three-week engagement.
WIT’s lastest engagement at DC Arts Centers finds our company ensembles performing alongside featured ensembles like Lena Dunham and special guests like I Don’t Know Her, Goodison, and Bring Back the ’90s.
The line-up changes every night and no performance is ever the same.
Now How Come That Wouldn’t Work?
Engineer-by-training Anna Ross solves an audience member’s problem LIVE using an engineer’s approach to problem solving.
Cast: Anna Ross
A fast-paced narrative where improvisers use their bodies to create objects, environments, and cinematic, show-stopping set pieces. The show will marry storytelling with a physicality that expands the possibilities of what can be done on an improv stage.
Cast: James Jelin, Kristina Martinez, Neil Baron, Erick Acuña, Kelsey Peters, Jason Walther, Eva Lewis, and more!
Surprise-song soundbites inspire scenes. Each mystery track will evoke an emotional environment and invoke spirited new characters.
A show based on an interview of a DC-based entrepreneur. We talk to someone cool things in DC in any area (food, media, music, arts, etc.), and ask them about how they started, if they have any interesting anecdotes about their work, and more.
