WORK IN PROCESS
This virtual presentation will include readings from the breaking protocols in-process script performed by the ensemble (Joe Jordan, Julie A. Lockhart, and Diana Tanaka), as well as a chat with theatre dybbuk’s artistic director and a writing workshop that invites the audience to personally investigate contemporary concerns related to the themes in the show.
ABOUT BREAKING PROTOCOLS
Set in the U.S. on the eve of the 1940 election, breaking protocols examines the quintessential antisemitic text, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” through the lens of a decaying vaudeville troupe using the tricks of the trade to try to set the record straight.
Exploding “The Protocols,” theatre dybbuk’s performance will explore contemporary issues connected to racism, propaganda, and false narratives.
As with all of theatre dybbuk’s works, breaking protocols will be rich in poetic text, choreographed movement, and original music.
breaking protocols is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation & Development Fund Project, co-commissioned by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) and The Hive at Leichtag Commons.
