LIVE OUT FEST 2019
October 10-13 | Details coming soon!
Celebrating National Coming Out Day, Live Out Fest is a tribute to the healing, liberating, revolutionary power of art to the LGBTQ+ community. Live Out seeks to bring the local community together from all corners of metro Detroit to celebrate and connect with one another through our collective commitment to stand in truth and consciously live out our most beautiful, authentic, queer selves - expressed through the creation and integration of art in all its forms. The festival features dance, music, spoken-word poetry, theatre, visual & performance art, comedy, burlesque, and more from local artists and creatives in the LGBTQ+ community. Festival proceeds will support the performers as well as local charities that embody our mission.

GET ON STAGE
The Ant Jam
Every Monday Night | 10p | FREE
The Ant Jam is a safe and inviting environment open to performers of all skill levels. Even if you have never improvised before you can feel comfortable playing in our Jam. Interested participants just need to put their name into the Jam Jar for a chance to play some improv games and do some long-form.
The Ant Jam is completely free, but we suggest arriving at 8pm for our Improv Monday show! At $5, it's the best entertainment deal in town.
Been attending our jams for a while? Maybe its time to boost your skills in our improv Training Center!
