Illustration, Graphic Design, Digital Art
Founded in 2010, the Circle Theater of New York (CTNY) is an ensemble of artists working in a wide variety of media. CTNY relies on company-wide collaboration to devise work with a focus on issues of substance and consequence expressed through a collective voice. Inclusive of immersive productions, workshops and events, our work strives to empower a community of artists with a shared goal of ambitious cross-cultural storytelling for our audiences.
RESIST! RISE UP! THE DOOMSDAY CABARET is a bi-weekly event that artistically responds to our current socio-political disposition. Incorporating a variety of media inspired by Weimar origins, each production will deepen our artistic & political dialogue as we face current struggles as an enlightened community. Comprised of artists in music, burlesque, clown & theatre as well as social scientists & politicians, THE DOOMSDAY CABARET promises an inspirational night of chaos & mayhem. Created by Isaac Bush, AD of the Circle Theater of NY & Miles Mandwelle, AD of Taksu Theater.
Strangers explores the themes of connection, choice and mortality as they relate to modern threats of climate change, surveillance, the spread of disease and the fears of a rapidly shifting world. Warnings from the past become a guide for how to approach the conflict of the immediate future – and patterns through time are revealed. Drawing on the work of Adolfo Bioy Casares, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and Albert Einstein, Strangers explores the nature of time and memory, the dividing line between magic and science, and the consequences of invention.
Following Hansel and Gretel in 2015, Strangers is the second cooperation between the TNL and the Circle Theater of New York.
