New at our neighbors TUTA Theatre!RADIO CULTURE is in previews now!
....What is RADIO CULTURE?

An excerpt from our Dramaturg's notes on the experimental wave of writing coming from Eastern Europe from which RADIO CULTURE emerged:

New drama” refers to a broad, eclectic phenomenon taking place in a particular historical moment in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and other countries.

“New drama” and the theatre associated with it seek to understand the workings and the essence of life as lived in the “here and now” of their authors. They are searching for a certain reality and its truth. The plays deal with the social issues providing a subtle social commentary. They are simple and personal pieces, often stripped back to their basic components.

The drama is based in a new style of documentary theatre with materials raging from police and court documents to witness reports and journals delivered on the stage verbatim.
