Portal of Parallels
Operating Theater Company will continue to push the envelope with its eighth production, "Portal of Parallels". A family-friendly and interactive inquisition of what defines our world, "Parallels" could be cleverly categorized as "an original devised theater production/art installation/social experiment."

Set at an outpost on "the edge of reality," the story explores the struggles of scientists on the brink of saving humanity. The resolution is left up to the audience, who are heavily involved from the very beginning when they enter the theater through a transcendental doorway. Viewers are presented with philosophical questions and propelled to think non-linearly about what reality truly is. Complete with a colorful cast of supporting characters that include delegates from alternate dimensions, a space meatball and a glam rock band, "Portal of Parallels" is expected to be an intellectually invigorating experience. This particular performance will be a culmination of work by the students of the IRT West Side Experiment.

Since 2007, IRT Theater has made a mission of hosting radically affordable, full-immersion development residences for emerging and established artists.  An offshoot of the IRT 3B Development Series, the IRT Westside Experiment will offer students the skills to create original devised theater in collaboration with a working theater company in residency at IRT, Operating Theater Company.

Established in 2004, The Operating Theater Company creates unusual, innovative, provocative live performance that experiments with perception and explores the subjectivity of human experience. Portal of Parallels was written by Jason Schuler, Christine Holt and Keith Chandler, based on an idea by Kourtney Rutherford. Managing Director of OTC Dori Ann Scagnelli.

"The Operating Theater have consistently staged some of the cleverest, best-produced multimedia performance-based theater in the last five years."  Tom Murrin, Paper Magazine
