Since 2013, Torn Space Theater’s original mythology has featured a society enacting an early harvest ritual. The annual ceremony is a metaphorical reaping of what has happened globally, locally and familially. In this virtual conversation Dan and Melissa will discuss the origin story of the mythology, personal influences, and references involved in making work described as “…an explosion of what “theater” means (Buffalo News) and “…conceived on a scale most theatre companies can only dream of.” (PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art).
