A Dynamic Theater

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.

 

COMING SOON

Theater Grottesco presents THE OTHER, the company’s 17th original production, March 19th – April 12th at the Swan Theatre in the Rufina Arts District.

The Other is a companion piece to last fall’s production of DIFFERENT, a structured improvisation. The company continues its research into ensemble, only this time they hand the keys to physical and vocal structures over to a family of Buffoons who will recount their own whacked versions of fairy tales. 

 

Buffoon is a little known style inspired by Medieval leper colonies and ships of fools, where those who were different – mentally, physically or socially - were cast out from society. The legend goes they found each other, one by one in the forests or on the waterways, and formed their own strange societies, reflections of our own.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

What All the Buzz is About

DISCOVERING THE STORY (AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN): THEATER GROTTESCO'S "DIFFERENT"

Nov, 2019

"Six women stand perfectly still, facing one another. And then they begin to move, as if one organism, flexing and contracting and then breaking apart, shattering themselves across the stage. One actor snaps her fingers. The others join in, one by one. They stomp their feet as they march inward on each other, their hissing and moaning growing louder. A voice rises above them, providing a line of story, and then they’re quiet again. Their gestures become more fluid, and they begin to whistle, which resembles a morning birdsong."

Lauren LaRocca, Pasatiempo
