Figment Theater Finds New Home at Asian Arts Initiative on Vine St.

Figment TheaterTonight, Figment Theater takes roots with the debut of Sessions at Studio C, from their new space at the Asian Arts Initiative in (ahem) studio C, located on 1219 Vine Street between 12th and 13th.

Executive director Matt Nelson had a few words about the transition from vagabond to improv establishment.

“We’re overwhelmed by the support we’ve received over the past year. Our goal has been to create a permanent space to nurture and showcase artistic talent, with a foundation of risk, innovation and collaboration. Tonight marks a modest but big step forward in bringing that idea to fruition.”

Sessions at Studio C opens tonight with The Chain w/ Becca Trabin & Guests, and Night of 10 Minute Shows w/ Maggy Keegan and Caitlin Weigel. Maggy and Caitlin talk more about Night of 10 Minute Shows in this interview on Figment Theater’s website.–“We’re doing 5 different ten minute shows, each with an absurdly specific and bizarre premise. I’m a sucker for theme parties and that’s what these feel like to me – the improv version of ten minute theme parties.” Also appearing on the show will be Corin Wells, Dan Corkery, Dave Piccinetti, Derrick Hackett, and Frank Farrell.
