Proto-type Theater: A Dangerous Thing

Proto-type Theater: A Dangerous Thing


Lancaster Arts is thrilled to offer the opportunity to revisit the world of Proto-type Theater, a company that has been working with us regularly for almost 15 years with a dangerous new work, for dangerous times. A Dangerous Thing is a new, digitally animated work created in response to a world full of uncertainty.

Proto-type Theater have worked with their long-time collaborator, visual artist Adam York Gregory, to continue their socially-engaged exploration of power, democracy, truth-telling, protest, privacy, conspiracy, and control.

Expanding on ideas explored in their recent, critically acclaimed theatre works (A Machine they're Secretly Building and The Audit or Iceland, a modern myth), A Dangerous Thing wants to punch its way out of the screen and into our homes.

It wants to shake us up, to wake us up, and to hunt down all those insidious lies, hiding in plain sight, and running ahead of us with their boots on.

Mashing and melding animation styles, original sound and composition, contemporary performance and story-telling, A Dangerous Thing is coming, and it cannot be stopped.
