Digital Desmadre is an innovative group of emerging performers, actors and comedians developing original vignettes and sketches for digital platforms. It’s goal is to nurture a new generation of BIPOC theatre makers who not only perform but are involved in the creative and writing process allowing everyone’s ideas to come to fruition.

Digital Desmadre uses an improv approach to develop a series of humorous satirical short scenes and scripts which we bring to the public through various digital mediums and social platforms such as Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram. Our work continues to create original parodies of contemporary culture and politics. We poke fun at all too familiar situations and genres for entertainment and hopefully to open up a dialogue and awareness of important current events.
