THEATRE FOR ONE

THEATRE FOR ONE

 

Mission:  Theatre for One is a mobile state-of-the-art performance space for one actor and one audience member.  Conceived by Artistic Director Christine Jones and designed by LOT-EK architects, Theatre for One commissions new work created specifically for this venue’s one-to-one relationship.  Embracing serendipity and spontaneity, Theatre for One is presented in public spaces in which audience members are invited to engage in an intimate theatrical exchange and and enter the theatre space not knowing what to expect.  Actor and audience member encounter each other as strangers in this suspended space and through the course of the performance allow the divisions and distinctions that separate us to dissolve.
