THE AЯTS is an original work of interdisciplinary theatre currently under development from Sponsored By Nobody. It deconstructs the history of public funding for the arts in the United States; and contrasts it with events in multiple European countries, where threats to public subsidy have become manifest in recent years.
THE AЯTS incorporates elements of choreography, live-camera usage, music, video, pre-recorded films, and both “found-texts” and original writing. It will be structured as a three-part work with interactive breaks for the audience built within its construction. Part One is set on October 28, 1963. Part Two is set on May 18, 1989. Part Three is set in the present and utilizes an invented dramaturgy to present multiple perspectives from different countries on stage simultaneously.
