Theater Grottesco: Survey

Saturday, August 13, 2022 7:30pm – 8:30pm

Performance dedicated to the memory of J.A. “Dino” Deane

516 ARTS and Outpost Performance Space present a unique performance with the renowned Theater Grottesco, exploring themes of Art Meets History through the lens of physical theatre. Burning Books, Axle Contemporary, and Theater Grottesco have collaborated on an absurdist vision of surveys, social media’s iconic contemporary information gathering tool. Laced with New Mexican history, Theater Grottesco turns the questions and answers over to its post-modern Greek chorus for a biting physical performance. Survey is a structured improvisation dedicated to the memory of J.A. Deane, the Duke of improvisation. Theater Grottesco began in Paris in 1983 and has created 18 full length productions and over 50 shorter works ranging in style from Tragic Buffoonery to gesture-based dance. They have performed in 8 countries, 30 states, most major U.S. cities, and dozens of smaller communities.
