Thing Power

We are at it again! Exploring the lives of objects as they move on from their intended purpose on the stage at ART, we have created a new 2-night-only performance debuting March 29 & 30, 2019. See these objects in a new light and join us for a special conversation about material use and reuse in the theatre industry. Tickets are on sale now. Pay what you can!

Object Karaoke

March 29 & 30, 2019 @ 7:30pm | Artist’s Repertory Theatre


What if things could speak? What could they tell us? Or are they speaking already and we just don't hear them?
- Walter Benjamin

Join Hand2Mouth and guest performers for the Alder Stage's final performance before demolition. Created using objects from Artists Rep's 2018-19 season, this farewell production listens to the songs and mutterings of objects. By tuning into the language of things, we can hear how the panel drapes communicate with picnic supplies, turn up the siren song of the disco ball, and finally know the secret whisperings of the theatre seats. What might these previously unlistened to things tell us about the 22 year history of the Alder Stage?

Object Karaoke (2019) is a continuation of research into "thing power" begun with Object Karaoke (2018), a one-night only performance held at Artists Repertory Theatre on Feb 27, 2018. This new production invites new objects, and several new artists, to create a farewell performance to Artist Rep's Alder Stage.
