TG creates a new kind of performance that is visual, explosive and full of surprise. The Grottesco Ensemble rekindles interest in live performance by juxtaposing classical and modern theatrical styles with a daring, poetic research of culture and imagination, giving voice to the marginal elements of our contemporary society, and taking audiences to the brink of emotional wonder and soulful reflection.


The Moment of YES!

May 7- May 9

The Moment of YES! is dance, theater, and music woven into a unique theatrical experience about communication, creating common culture and the humor of the journey, relishing complicity, and tracing the cracks that can grow into their own monsters. It is a tribute to Peter Brook and the empty space. Imagine an actor challenging the order of the play he is in; or seeing another human being for the first time. “Everything in the world began with a yes. One molecule said yes to another molecule and life was born.”—Clarice Lispector, The Hour of the Star
