About this project
Once upon a time you flew on the current of a voice to far off worlds and alternate universes all while shrouded in mother’s expertly tucked sheets. Take the journey again… We at Found Theater invite you to our bedtime story.
Inspired by The Last World by Christoph Ransmayr and The Metamorphoses by Ovid, “Tales” explores storytelling, what it means to tell a narrative, how stories weave the framework of our lives, our society, our collective worldview. Each actor will begin building work inspired by this source material and on September 3rd we will begin performances as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Our production will be presented at the stunning converted factory, the Philadelphia Book Company.
We are asking for donations in order to create the design elements of our show as well as pay for advertising.
The new theater collective “Found Theater Company” is here to investigate the possibilities of theater, to explore the nature of performance and its relationship to the audience. Found Theater is dedicated to the production of new material through a collaborative, laboratory-based rehearsal process. This means working together with artists from different disciplines to generate passionate and relevant new work. We take time. We need time…to discover a starting point where theater can grow organically.
