SEPTEMBER 27 - OCTOBER 7, 2012
Physical. Variety. Show.
A Theatre 3 original production, presented by ETCETERA, the late-night arm of Live Theatre Workshop.
ABOUT THE SHOW
MixTape is the first offering in a series of new works to be created by Theatre 3 and produced by ETCETERA. On July 27, the artists of Theatre 3, who specialize in ensemble-created work, entered the rehearsal room with one goal: to create an evening of original short performances for the ETCETERA stage.
MixTape is a compilation of original performances exploring the theme of physical theatre. It’s variety. It’s vaudevillesque. It’s created for you by Theatre 3 featuring Matt Walley and Angela Horchem--graduates of the world-recognized school of physical theatre, Dell’Arte International--and original music by Michael Martinez.
MixTape: an evening of original pieces that will delight, mystify, and awaken your sense of mirth.
