Dystopia

2008

Synaesthetic Theatre undresses The Emperor's New Clothes to reveal the fairy tale's relevance in the face of the current global political climate. The secrets, confessions, fear and apathy woven into Hans Christian Andersen's text are unraveled and patched together in a series of absurd, disparate, yet connected vignettes that strip away story and unveil substance.

   
Dystopia

2007
workshop

Part burlesque, part performance art, Dystopia is an evening of image-driven and often surreal 'acts' which combine spectacle, satire and social commentary. Themes are drawn from classic examples of 'dystopian' literature -- including George Orwells's 1984, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Yevgeny Zamyatin's We and Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 - combined with the news and events unfolding in the US and larger world.

   
The Trial of K

2007
/ 2005

A live multimedia dream play based on Kafka's masterpiece, which blends physical theatre, dance, live streaming surveillance video and original music with German Expressionism and classic Film Noir.

   
Arcana: Cycle of the Fool

2004

A multimedia performance piece comprised of interchangeable compositions set within a dreamlike landscape of war; exploring loss, fear, courage, moral conflict and love.

   
Icon

Obsession. Revenge. Nosy neighbors. Synaesthetic Theatre adapts H. G. Wells's The Invisible Man, that grimly humorous tale of scientific ambition run amok.
