Improv comedy, theater, and dance blend in SoBo Studio’s ‘Channel the Change’

BRATTLEBORO — Local dance and art space SoBo Studio, located in Suite 346 of the Cotton Mill, is hosting a one-night-only “artistic explosion” of improv comedy, dance, and theater.

The show, “Change the Channel/Channel the Change,” takes place Sunday, May 26, at 7 p.m. Proceeds will benefit SoBo's scholarship program to give the gift of dance to those who need it most.

According to a news release, the Change the Channel/Channel the Change Collective, a project of SoBo Studio, “uses comedy as a means of keeping with their ethos that art is one of the most important modalities of social activism that will make you think, cry, laugh, heal, and potentially have a moment where your brain buffers.”

SoBo Studio says it is their intention “to create community events that bring people together and create dialogue around the most important issues facing culture today” and this show fits with their mission to create “a space for people of all ages, body types, and experience to learn to communicate their emotional selves through the language of movement.”

This show is directed and produced by filmmaker and sketch comedy creator Toni Nagy, who co-owns SoBo Studio with Cyndal Ellis.

The show is also co-produced by local actor, producer, and teacher Patrick Donnelly.
