Do You See Theatre
2009 – 2017
The format, tone, and enthusiasm for transformative stories of the NPR radio show, but on a comedy or theatre stage in Austin, TX starring “Not Ira Glass.” Usually but not always funny, parts improvised, parts scripted, always live!
Performance scientists who use improv and meta-theatre to learn about each other and the moments they inhabit on stage. Current Public Experiment Underway: Mapping the Mind thru MetaCartography.
All the romantic duets, show-stopping ensemble pieces, complex polyphonies and daddy issues of a Sondheim musical like INTO THE WOODS or SWEENEY TODD, but it’s all improvised by ONE actor and a pianist.
They say music is love in search of a word. The Band of Liars is love in search of music. Based on suggestions from the audience they summon an entire album of improvised songs, never before heard, never to be listened to again.
Improvised Adventures in Time and Space. Performed by two actor-improvisers, a lighting improviser, and a sound fx improviser. In the style of The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged.
