Roadhouse is a regular night of improvised performance hosted by Elenor Sikorski and Lewys Holt. They both perform each night as the Roadhouse House Band. The night concludes with all the artists coming together for a spontaneous group improvisation. A guest writer will document each night live on paper, providing proof that something actually happened (see roadhousenights.com/roadhouse-log).
Eleanor and Lewys think that improvisation is political. They see that there is lots of improvisation about, but no obvious place to do it or watch it. This is a space for artists to practice performing and for audiences to practice watching.
Why not stop in at the Roadhouse?
