Cat's Cradle: A Graduation Show

Bad Dog's Cat's Cradle studio class has been working together for months, honing their skills on the infamous improv format: Cat's Cradle

Cat's Cradle is a form initially created at IO Chicago with Del Close and Charna Halpern. This form is named after the child's string game where two players pass the same string back and forth making different and beautiful complex shapes. It's a highly physical format where all players are engaged in every scene finding movement and transformation based edits. It's like improv on LSD, or an ever expanding dream.

Before riding off into the summer sunset, they will present their final show at Bad Dog Theatre on Sunday, May 12th at 8pm.

Don't miss out on seeing these special, magical, totally rad format!!

Directed by comedy superstar Kirsten Rasmussen!!
