TransPoeticoLab

The TransPoeticoLab makes collaborative productions with professional theatre groups that provide a cast, rehearsal space, and performance venue(s). Manifesto Poetico then comes to create an original show through the creation of a new theatrical language made on the spot for and with the group. This typically 2-4 week process then results in a production that is ready to play and tour.  

Recent TransPoetico Lab collaborative productions include: Nama Kamu Atas Perahu (Kuala Lumpur, 2013), Tito’s Dream (Connecticut, 2014), Bogota In Action (Bogota, 2015), New York Lands (New York, 2016) and Klassiek van de Toekomst (Haarlem, NL, 2017), etc.

 
 
The story telling makes the life within each character not only amuse and engage the audience, but also grab them by the throat and jerk them into the world on stage and, by extension, the world we live in.
