New York improv team: Long Division

Long Division is comprised of the surviving acolytes of Nils Sutphen, the Dutch physicist who in 2002 supercharged the troposphere over Halse, causing a low ionic decay that has illuminated the sky there since. Sutphen, whose improvisatory approach to mathematical theory was widely ridiculed in the science community, was dissipated in the experiment. (Says one Long Divider: “He was ubiquitous and infinite in that moment, and he suffuses us. Since then we have tended to breathe in more often than out, so as not to be dispossessed of his animus.”) The acolytes continue Sutphen’s techniques of improvisation. “We’ll run the sets over and over again, changing the pattern ever so slightly, until a unified field theory emerges.”
