anděl sudik’s “an improvised life”

An Improvised Life: What makes a person; what makes a life? Through audience suggestions anděl will create a character and perform their “soul-bearing” solo show using storytelling, character work, clowning and movement. It will be both a celebration and a send up of solo theater, humanity and together with the audience will decide whether it’s aspirational or a cautionary tale.
