Virtuoso (working title) World Premiere


With VIRTUOSO (WORKING TITLE), Proto-type Theater expand on the sensual experience of their critically acclaimed Whisper (which was developed and premiered at the Nuffield) into a world of televisual decadence.

Three performers stage the story of a stagnant American suburbia, where the minutiae of everyday life have become strange: glass windows portend violence, a spot on the wall promises freedom and a stranger appears in the living room...

The performers assemble the backgrounds, costumes and props necessary to craft a series of perfect images for a television show that doesn’t exist. VIRTUOSO (WORKING TITLE) negotiates the live and the mediated, ruminating on love, home, and perfection.
