How would a theatre produce a show during a 21st century pandemic? Employing Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author and Tristan Tzara’s The Gas Heart, this devised piece dissects the traditional conventions of producing theatre and flips them inside out. TRADITION centers around three “actors” producing a new work in a pandemic. Each actor pushes past their convention of what constitutes “theatre” answering the question: How can theatre live in the new normal?
Please be advised the following piece includes dark themes that some viewers may find disturbing.
