Additional Information

The Center for the Art of Performance is honored to bring back New York-based SITI Company.

A world-renowned ensemble, SITI Company is lauded for its innovation and the creation of new forms of theater that challenge accepted norms and defy classification. Their recent work, the theater is a blank page, is a much-heralded collaboration with celebrated visual artist Ann Hamilton, internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multimedia installations.

Hamilton has a long history of including performative elements in her installation work, and the theater is a blank page demonstrates her interest in shaping performance from a conceptual, visual art-based perspective.

Co-directed by Hamilton and acclaimed SITI Co-Artistic Director Anne Bogart, the project draws equally on SITI Company’s impeccable skills as theater-makers, pushing their aesthetic into fresh, new territory. This intimate, immersive performance installation utilizes the entirety of the theater, as the audience is led through the balconies, to the production shops, into the wings and finally onto the stage itself.

With text drawn directly from Virginia Woolf’s 1927 novel To the Lighthouse, the novel’s evocative language and inventive narrative—which skillfully deploy shifting temporal and psychological perspectives alongside poignant ruminations on loss, subjectivity and perception—make it a fertile point of departure for artists of different disciplines to find deep kinship in a collaboration addressing the experience of reading and being read to.
