ABOUT THE THEATRE ABOUT
A JOURNEY TO A ROOM.
“One of my first theater educators told me that it is the idea about the theater itself that makes the theater so important. It is the ideas that make people gather, and if the idea is strong enough, we are willing to sacrifice a lot.
We have had a desire to go back to the starting point, to the theater itself, to the idea of the theater. We ask ourselves: what was it about theater? Why is it important? What is the fascination? The humiliations? And why exactly theater? What is it, Theater.”
Verk Productions has staged a number of performances at Black Box teater through their more than twenty-year work, most recently the critically acclaimed The Big Dream in the fall of 2019. The company tours both at home and abroad, receiving warm responses from both press and audiences. Among other recognitions, they have received the Hedda Award twice.
