This is likely to be an interesting production. This experimental play is partially inspired by Der Hofmeister, a relatively obscure 1774 play by JMR Lenz, the tragically schizophrenic member of the “Sturm Und Drang” movement who was a contemporary and friend of Goethe.
Dark Porch’s press release states:
Developed with a four-member ensemble of performers, TUTOR employs composed texts, improvisation, an original electroacoustic musical score, and video projection. A screen will hang from the ceiling, showing composed rhythmic mashups of original video with amateur YouTube uploads from the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad–which was, not coincidentally, formerly known as East Prussia, and which was the original setting of Lenz’s play.
Sounds promising. Watch for our review in the coming days.
