Description

Step into the studio and become part of the link between San Francisco and Los Angeles with the Tilted Frame Network (TFN). Audiences in both San Francisco and Los Angeles will witness a short form improv show going on simultaneously on two stages in these two cities. Actors interact across this distance through an internet connection, performing new improv games inspired by technology, the internet and video.

Starting during the dot com revolution Tilted Frame has been pushing the envelope of multi-media production for more than seven years. Opening with Taste Like Random in the summer of 2002, Tilted Frame uses video and the internet in a way no other company has used them before. Now, with companies in Los Angeles and San Francisco, they have further experimented with the format of the show, leading up to this cross-state performance.

Combined Artform has been producing new and classic works in the performance scene for over ten years. Created by Producing Artistic Director Matthew Quinn and Bertha Rodriguez in 1998, they were joined by Steve Kahn in 1999, and have collaborated with actors, singers, filmmakers, sketch comedy groups, musicians, improvisers, and fine artists in hundreds of shows, including Santaland Diaries, Eavesdropper (SF), PAPA, Tilted Frame – SF & LA, the SF Solo Festival, and recently with PianoFight on Shortlived and FORKING (LA). They built Off-Market Theaters in 2005 and took over Theatre Asylum in Los Angeles in 2007.
