The Dusty is a homegrown improv format created by students and founders of The New Movement. No sweep edits are allowed and all devices and time dashes are employed through the front of the stage. A staple of Dusty Night has all groups eventually merging their shows into one fluid piece.
Dusty Night at Hell Yes Fest includes format pioneers Brows (New Orleans), Moonsault (first Dusty group from TNM Austin) and Sapphire (New Orleans).
