In the absence of humans, the stage has gained the ability to put on mechanized performances to please only itself. Using text from the works of Charles Mee, Gertrude Stein, and Matei Vişniec (with translations by. Adam J. Sorkin and Lidia Vianu), in a series of theatrical dares, the actors of Trap Door Theatre will attempt to retake the stage, confronting notions of live performance, automation, and the cycles we perpetuate.
