Sonic Potlatch 19. Long-form improvisation. Unspectacular collaborations for liquidating time. Expand hearing: new ears for new messages liberated from tradition, cut free from the guarantees of success. Reject the hierarchy of executive fluency.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A NOISY-NIGHT!

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
