Join Angela Oliver of Matt Damon Improv for an interactive workshop exploring how performance celebrates female empowerment, diversity and social justice. Oliver currently performs with Matt Damon Improv at The Annoyance Theatre. This all-women-of-color satirical improv ensemble provides a safe platform for people-of-color and LGBTQIA artists to perform acts that confront current racial tensions and social issues. Visit Hull-House to experiment with interdisciplinary play and learn how Oliver uses comedy to take on contemporary issues.
