five IN ASYLUM Series
THEATER IN ASYLUM's five IN ASYLUM series unifies five performances under five form-based rules. While the content is unrestrained, all five pieces have five formal elements in common. Following the presentation of each work, talkbacks with the creators give audiences the opportunity to engage with the artists on the creative process and the five rules.
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.
