Politheatrics | Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphey School | Performances | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: June 28-July 8 2012
Price: $5

The term "devised theater" might cause you to shrug, but you practice it all the time. It's a lot like playing. More and more, local theater companies are using this intuitive, collaborative writing process to develop lively, original work for area stages. The energy and urgency that directed improvisation encodes into theatrical scripts and performances will be on display at this first-ever festival of devised work by companies from across the state and throughout the Southeast. Presenting new performances loosely centered on the idea of politics will be Haymaker of Durham, Urban Garden of Raleigh, Machine Theatre of Charlotte, force/collision of Washington, D.C., Neutral Ground Ensemble of New Orleans, Awkward Elephant Project of Pittsburgh, and Anna Jones of London and New York. The festival runs Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through July 8. Tickets to all performances are $5; visit burningcoal.org for the full schedule. —Chris Vitiello
