Theater in Asylum's cabaret series unifies performances under a single theme for the night. Many artists are invited to create short pieces to illuminate and complicate beliefs around the chosen theme. Between acts, audiences may engage with the artists and each other in a complex and tangled conversation.
Theater in Asylum (TIA) is a New York-based theater company founded in 2010 to challenge and empower our community. TIA joyfully pursues a rigorous research and an ensemble-driven approach to theater-making. We create performances to investigate our past, interpret our present, and imagine our future. We prize space to process, space to question—asylum—for ourselves and our community.
