ARTISTIC STATEMENT

Most theatres are like mirrors, reflecting the familiar. You go to a show, you sit, you watch a play, and then you go home. You watch the actors from across the chasm of a "fourth wall." Everything is nicely laid out for you as you view what is comfortably, safely beyond that wall, confident that you will be made, indeed are expected, to understand the experience in terms of conventional logic.

Aren’t we all tired of that by now?

What if theatre weren’t a mirror reflecting the familiar, but an opening into unknown territory? What if there were no fourth wall? What if, instead of going to the theatre to watch a play, you crossed the threshold into the world of the play to experience it? Theatre that expands the imagination and extends the conventional boundaries of language, structure, space, and performance that challenges the conventional notions of what theatre is. What sort of theatre would this be?

We are convergence-continuum.

ISAAC’S EYE
by Lucas Hnath
directed by Clyde Simon

opening Fri, March 20
running Thu-Sat at 8 pm thru April 11

As a young man, Isaac Newton inserted a needle into his tear duct to the back of his eye. No one knows why, or what he was trying to prove by
this risky behavior. Hnath has used this weird factoid, actual historical events, and a whole bunch of made-up stuff involving Isaac’s sort-of girlfriend and a startlingly lecherous Sir Robert Hooke, to create a truly quirky look at what drove the brilliant but troubled farm boy, Isaac, to become one of the world’s greatest thinkers.
