This Infinite Closet presents silent improv: The Crash (B)atlas with No More Words
Inspired by silent movies and the grand soundtracks of modern entertainment, the No More Words troupe takes its material from music to create silent improvised tales using only body language and emotion. The cast includes Jessica Brown and Micah Stinson.
This Infinite Closet temporarily emerges from the dark to present a mash up of two unique improv forms, the crash atlas and the bat. The crash atlas is an original form inspired by David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas, Paul Haggis' film Crash and Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Through several interconnected stories, performers explore the ways in which the metamorphosis of one person can indirectly impact others.
Within the crash atlas, performers will turn off the lights and further explore the worlds they've created through a bat, an auditory form of improv done in total darkness that uses sound effects, tones and sounds to create rich characters and unique worlds.
This Infinite Closet is a melange of Station Theater alumni, students and instructors who come together over their shared love of absurd storylines, entertaining characters and experimental sound. The cast includes Roger Anderson, Jessica Brown, Matt Graham, Laura Helmers, Monica Marcha, Nicholas Martinez, Steven M. Saltsman and Antoine W.B.
