Steer

Thursday, April 6, 2017

The visually stunning result shows the intersection of the human and the digital–and offers a glimpse the implications of sensory enhancement as much as the ethical predicament of the disembodied self.

The Radio Show

Tuesday, April 11, 2017
8:00pm

MacArthur Genius Award-winner Kyle Abraham proudly wears a multitude of signifiers: queer, black, high-modernist and popular.

Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
8:00pm

The involving and frequently unnerving “manual animations” of Daniel Barrow are by turns witty, vulnerable and grotesque. At times voyeuristic, nostalgic and personal, Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry is a runaway allegory that confirms the essence of theatre while expertly dissecting it.

KAMP (CAMP)

Thursday, April 13, 2017
8:00pm

An enormous scale model of Auschwitz fills the stage. We see a single day in a city purpose-built for the annihilation of human life, performed with the aid of thousands of handmade puppets. KAMP is, in every way, performance of necessity and a daring representation of the banality of evil.

My Arm

Tuesday, April 18, 2017
8:00pm

Endlessly curious about the possibilities of stage and audience, Tim Crouch is one of the most influential experimental playwrights now working in the English language. 2005’s My Arm is an elegantly simple work that almost magically confirms Crouch’s insistence that the most interesting effects of theatre occur in the minds of the audience.

Mies Julie

Wednesday, April 19, 2017
8:00pm

Mies Julie is South African theatre-maker Yael Farber’s unforgettable representation of the echoes of injustice in a post-traumatic society. Farber is one of the major voices of contemporary South Africa, and in her incisive vision, August Strindberg’s classic story of class and gender in conflict comes to startling new life.
