The Cutting Ball Variety Pack: Directors Series
Exit on Taylor, 277 Taylor St., San Francisco
February 2-11, 2018, Fri-Sat 8pm, Sun 5pm
A potent idea, even a false one, is a force. Iago, architect of the tragedy in Shakespeare's Othello
, is also a force. He entices his audience of one, Othello, with a fictive world. Othello contributes to this narrative and is lost. In this sense, Iago is both creator and destroyer, god and devil. The dynamic between Iago and Othello contains many such paradoxes, devoid of explanation or resolution.
This short performance is presented within The Cutting Ball Theater Directors' Series. The Directors Series is a single production containing four separate interdisciplinary works, each conceived by a different director.
Inspired by Shakespeare
Director: Jonathan Vandenberg
Dramaturg: Erik Grathwohl
