Theatre Grottesco: Survey

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 will turn the questions and answers over to its post-modern Greek chorus for a biting physical performance.

The survey is available online through February 15, 2022. Participate in this interactive project that will leave you grinning all day long. 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. Grottesco has performed in 8 countries, 30 states, most major U.S. cities, and dozens of smaller communities.
