The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui
By Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Jennifer Wise
A cautious yet critical Brecht wrote this gangster thriller in 1941 in response to the rise of Hitler in Germany. Staged as a "gangster spectacle", Arturo Ui will combine digital puppetry, comedy, cabaret and toy theater to explore the rise of nationalism, and the influence of charismatic, strong men in today's global politics.

Where do our online avatars and offline lives collide? What are the different ways we choose to perform in these two separate spaces? How do we process trauma within the landscape of social media? Currently in development with writer, Izzi Desposito, ***Not Clickbate*** is a performance piece exploring all these questions through text, media, and live performance.
