We are pleased to announce the four theory performances that will provide the core of Theorems, Proofs, Rebuttals, and Propositions: A Conference of Theoretical Theater. These four performances will be the basis of all further formal and informal responses, talks, and panels within the conference. The four projects were chosen from a large number of proposals, and we are looking forward to some very interesting provocations.


Mike Taylor (USA) will present IDEA MACHINE: Experiments in Theatre Techniques for Audience Transformation, a work reflecting on the conditions of theater itself, and focusing on instances of compression and transformation.


Reality Research Center (FINLAND) will perform MYSTERIES OF LOVE, a monumental performance series in the form of an esoteric school in which repeated lessons on eros guide the pupil toward an experience of absolute beauty.

Amapola Prada (PERU) will show REVOLUTION, a piece that posits methods for relating ideologic structures to the body via the artist’s own pessimism.


Finally, Kikuko Tanaka (JAPAN/USA) will present POULTRY PARADISE AND ITS DISCONTENTS to investigate the constructed nature of revolt/resistance, intertwining sexuality, and artistic production.


The conference will take place in September 6-14th, 2013 in New York City. Schedule is coming soon.
