Equal parts musical comedy, dance film and mockumentary, Improvement Club is a delightful new film that traces a Seattle performance group's attempt to probe the failings of the American Revolution. When the ensemble loses its shot at a New York premiere, their wish for an audience takes them to the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest on what becomes a surreal quest for trust, togetherness and the meaning of artistic struggle.

Loosely inspired by the creation of Gloria's Cause, a live, dance-driven rock musical by Seattle artist Dayna Hanson, Improvement Club takes an approach to narrative that borrows freely from dance theatermusical tropes (via interludes which punctuate the story). Dialogue gives way to songs, dance breaks and dreamy visual ideas. The film swoops from profoundly human, everyday situations to soaring flights of the imagination and back again in a kaleidoscopic story of love, loss and freedom.
