- About the Artists
A MixTape of performances exploring the theme of physical theatre.
As R.G. Chesterton unpacks his steamer trunk, he reveals the imaginative world it contains. Experience dancing creatures falling in love, acrobatic clowns performing a death-defying dive, and other surprising discoveries. It’s variety. It’s vaudevillesque. It’s a MixTape of original pieces that will delight, mystify, and awaken your sense of mirth.
“A charming evening of humor, theater, and acrobatic dance performed with intelligence.” ~Chuck Graham, Tucson Stage
“In its simplicity, it is grand. In its creativity, it is a pleasure. As a joint venture—because Walley and Horchem engage so genuinely with us—Theatre 3′s MixTape rocks.” ~Sherilyn Forrester, Tucson Weekly
The premiere of MixTape inspired local Tucson actors to try physical theatre. This led to us teaching a class in physical character creation, and the students in the class will create a short performance called MixTape: The B Side which will perform just before we come to Cincy!
Theatre 3 believes in embracing joy and the human experience to create original, imaginative works that serve and engage the community through collaboration and the expansion of the possibilities of performance.
Theatre 3 specializes in ensemble-created performances.The artists of Theatre 3 bring a passion for character, love for the physical, and spirit of exploration and discovery to all of their work.
