|The Control Group|
The Control Group was an improv troupe associated with The New Movement.
Their press blurb, taken from a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:
Tearing forth from the comedy black holes from the far-off spaces in the universe, The Control Group was formed using the most intense forces of nature known to man. Veteran students of The New Movement, the members of TCG consist of Tom Niland, Alex Berry, Micheal Foulk, Margaux Binder, and Mandy Spivey.
"What's Your Deal?"
Their answer to the "What's Your Deal?" question on a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:
We start all our sets with a conversation among the performers.
Hopefully, it makes us seem friendly and charming and likable while generating information to use in our pieces.
We then use the information we've generated just moments before to name our piece on the spot and begin doing long form scenes.
We try to pull elements through from scene to scene.
