the theater is a blank page is a unique, immersive performance created by theater innovators SITI Company and renowned visual artist Ann Hamilton. The work’s title metaphorically refers to the simultaneously solitary and immersive, sensory yet imaginative experience of reading. As an extension of this idea, Hamilton and SITI will focus their performance, in part, on the apparatus of the theater—its architecture, mechanics, and tools—as well as the transformative process of artists discovering what can be conjured there together with an audience.
the theater is a blank page premieres on April 23 at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH. Tickets and more information are available here.
