Schkapf

Los Angeles, CA


Schkapf is an incubation house for curious performances & other experiences. The word "schkapf" is a nonsense word but it bears a close similarity to the Russian shkap which could be translated as a wardrobe, armoire, cupboard, or any variation on this theme. Located inside a former automotive garage and a machine shop for rifles, it is always transforming, evolving, changing, all the while remaining a gestation platform for new performance installations,  a fairground for the new day polymaths, and a watering hole for poets and jesters.

Schkapf's particular love is for what would be best described as a non-dramatic theatre,  for crafted experiences that mix and fuse archaic forms of clown, bouffon, magic, puppetry into various styles of presentation such as cabaret, farce, vaudeville, carnival, street parade, immersive theatre, a ritual of wedding or a wake, and more.  

We are most curious about projects that tend to disrupt or blow up the conventions of theatre with the use of other human canons: anthropology, architecture, physics, animation, cinema, folk traditions, poetry, etc.
