Indigo Shift

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

INDIGO SHIFT is an improvised dystopian cabaret, an apocalyptic mix of stories, scenes and songs to wait out and ring in the end of the world, following a troupe of performers (Solomon Strange, Anita Deva, and Colin) as they perform one final show for the last night on Earth. Discussing apocalyptic themes with the audience through the lens of these characters, Indigo Shift draws threads to weave into the ultimate performance...literally. So…pull up a chair. Have a drink. Come and see...One night only…because there’s only one night left!

Inspired by a mutual love of musical improv and theatrical storytelling, Indigo Shift consists of friends and longtime collaborators Jordan T. Maxwell, Kacey Samiee, and Jeffrey Amos. Drawing on a wide range of pop, literary and dramatic traditions, Indigo Shift flows between different levels of staged themselves, as their apocalyptic personae, as the characters they play in scenes...punctuated by both narrative and thematic musical numbers to create an utterly unique improv experience that has been featured at Improvaganza in Honolulu, the Alaska State Improv Festival in Juneau, and of course Out of Bounds in their hometown of Austin, Texas!
