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.

Arenít we all tired of that by now?

What if theatre werenít 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.

 
 IN THE CLOSET by Siegmund Fuchs, Oct 13-Nov 4
A rolling world premiere with
Rainbow Theatre Project, Washington DC

Old Man, Middle-Aged Man, and Young Man are taking refuge in a large walk-in closet. Each is in the closet for vastly different reasons. Enter 18-year-old John, who frantically runs in immediately following his first gay sexual encounter. As all three men try to convince John to come out of the closet, each has to confront his own humorous, awkward and heartbreaking reasons for being there himself. What will convince them to come out of the closet?
