The New Movement

616 Lavaca, 512/696-2590
Since opening in 2009, the improv conservatory on the busy corner of West Sixth & Lavaca has cultivated an affecting, bizarro approach that sets its weekly programming and classes apart from other local clubs. Its small theatre creates immediate physical contact between audience and improvisers, and in shows like Fuck This Week and Opposites, run by recurring groups of (sometimes overly) intense comedians, the "fierce experimental mixture" of styles hits you like a humor freight train. No venue in the city is as unpredictable, abstract, or inclusive of up-and-coming improvisatory talent.
