TOHUBOHU! Extreme Theater
In Paris, France, the word tohubohu was enfolded within the French language. It seemed to connote chaos, collision, disorder. AH! QUEL TOHUBOHU! someone would say, and, at once, people would scurry, rearrange chairs, puff the cushions, set a more orderly table, stop the chatter. Tohubohu was to be avoided and attended to. After many months and sometimes years of effort, we are taking the Tohubohu of life, of history, of personal development and of thought, and creating extreme theatre.
TOHUBOHU! is Total Free Improvisation, which is nothing like a scripted, rehearsed, and repeatable show. Our form of theatre is difficult as no other art form is. We act and react, respond to surprises, challenges, accidents, the unknown, the unexpected, as we do in so-called real life. Only in a way that we call art.
As we perform together, we collaborate with our partners in creating form, composition, and meaning, sometimes realistically, sometimes abstractly, emanating from our conscious, our unconscious, our dreams, our poetic imagination and our unique individual selves.
Its scary. Its exhilarating. We are all devoted to this quest without end, and hope that our audience, witness to the mysterious alchemical process of that form, will join us on our path of discovery, wonder, and joy!
