About this show

Mustard is a renegade adaptation of Ibsen's A Doll's House, performed by Ordinary Theater, written and directed by Mitchell Polin, who specializes in "re-mix" as a formalized theatrical tool of process and structure. Falling somewhere between "Happenings," rituals, and rock concerts, his works combine live music, song, video, found texts, movement, and storytelling into a fluid landscape of performance. The piece has choreography by Polin and Michael Burke, lighting by Blu and live music and video projection by Tungsten74, a psyche noise freak out space rock band. The part of Nora is divided between Kimberly Brandt, Jessie Richardson and The Philly (a flaming red-haired underground film star, noise musician, and visual artist). Polin is a director who moved from happenings into theater, so don't expect a well-made play. The project is best described as a "theatrical re-mix" of Ibsen's classic, which takes the audience on a sound walk around an imaginary city in which Nora lives.
