WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Imagine you awake one morning and don't know who you are. You feel fine, and all the material trappings of your life surround you--but you have no memories. Your task becomes to construct a life using the evidence that you can find. Such is the work of the actor...and of the ensemble in the New York premiere of Theater Mitu's Dr. C (Or How I Learned to Act in 8 Steps). Part video game, part torture chamber, part documentary, this opera in eight parts juxtaposes the physicality of the 1919 silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari against a live score, state-of the art technology, and a new text created from the words of eight of history's leading acting theorists to ask, "what is acting…and why do we care?" It is an unintentional homage to the people and ideas that, for better or for worse, have irrevocably shaped the way we view the art of acting.
