Event description
Rumble Theatre presents: TREMORS, a celebration of performance and unmaking

About this Event

Festival Dates: October 28 - 31, 2020


This year’s festival switches gears from full-length plays to focus on eight new works in development from up-and-coming artists. Join us to get a first look at some of the amazing work percolating in our live performance scene!

Our exciting program of multidisciplinary work—including theatre, dance, music, video, and Virtual Reality—highlights the intersections of art and performance and explores not only the creation process but the politics and philosophies behind it.

The lineup includes: 

100 YT GUYS IN AN HOUR (Rage Sweater Theatre Productions): A high-energy musical comedy that reclaims BIPOC history while deconstructing the colonial white supremacist system of thought.

Attachments (Dusty Foot Productions): This new play-in-development follows six queer characters as they navigate an intersectional polyamorous relationship.

Danceboy: First Dance (Danceboy company): Written and performed by Munish Sharma, this solo show is an eclectic mix of poetry, story, and dance.

Low Grade Euphoria (The Public Swoon): With imagery inspired by visual ASMR and the aesthetics of femme self-care, this series of short videos conjures pleasure, care and companionship against a backdrop of COVID-isolation.

Origins: V (Immigrant Lessons): A new work-in-development from the dance-art collective Immigrant Lessons, Origins: V is a dance theatre, visual media, immersive exploration into a past that leaves echoes in the present.

The fire that runs through (Joshua Ongcol): Created and performed by Joshua Ongcol, this piece is an exploration of the immigrant experience through dance.

The time it takes me to get to you (Subjects of History): Created as a response to the marked global rise of Fascism, the time it takes me to get to you is an immersive, transdisciplinary work being developed in Virtual Reality (VR).

Underground Absolute Fiction: A Video ‘Zine (Anais West): Through letters, social media posts, and the music videos of a queer punk band, Underground Absolute Fiction questions whether queerness can connect us across cultural rifts, or if it is just another site of Western Imperialism.
