What would you do for love? Nine women on a soccer field? Undergo a change in velocity? An ambitious invasion of France? Young writers and dancers? Teen spirit. Teen angst. Teen gossip. Teen goals. This doo-wop horror comedy musical botanical mashup is a rockin’ mixed bag of original works-in-progress. Shakespeare’s masterpiece depicts the horrors of war and the growing pains of a young royal.

Danceprov: The Story of You

Date: 
Tuesday, April 3, 2018 - 5:00pm

Presented by Skitty Kitties, University of Kentucky's improvisation troupe.

This is a collaborative show between Improv and Dance Students. We will be improvising the whole show based off of an audience members story. The dancers will be given a prop, an emotion, song, and have to improv a dance based off of the audience members story. After the dance ends, the improvisers will go into acting out the story. This is a one of a kind show, where you get to see an exciting display of improv being pushed to the limit.
