Dystopia: A Variety Show

Dystopia is a sketch show that creates dystopian universes where our political, economic or social nightmares have come to reality in order to get the audience wondering could this really happen here? The host Marcela Onyango will interview activists at the end of the show to ask them whether the dystopias depicted in the show are feasible and if there is anything that can be done to stop them.

Directed by Michelle Francesca Thomas

Dancify That!

Dynamic Dance Duos vs. The Internet.

Teams compete in taking bizarre videos from the internet and using them as inspiration for dance choreography. We all watch the video together. Teams create their dance. They perform. Then they are judged by comedians who know nothing about dance.

A dance show for people that don’t like dance shows and anyone who loves laughing, eating free snacks, sexy aerobics, and sing-a-longs.

Watch Video. Make Dance. Go for Gold.
