DO YOU SEE THEATRE?
We do. Can’t get enough of it. It’s our mission to create and support spaces where people from all walks of life can express themselves in this (and every other) media.
Dystheatre (Do You See Theatre) is the show, event, and festival producing department of the Make Every Media network. Our current obsession: Preservation Station, a podcast series about the preservation of arts spaces in Austin, TX.
we produce and promote shows
DYSTHEATRE opened our first full season of theatre with the play that Noel Coward once described as “five very good scenes and one bad one.” David O’Hare’s first, written in the back of a van with a typewriter on his knees over a period of four-days.
Public radio theatre for the entire electromagnetic spectrum–Visible AND Invisible Light. The format, tone, and enthusiasm for personal stories of This American Life, but, well… it’s NOT.
Performance scientists who use improv and meta-theatre to learn about each other and the moments they inhabit on stage. Current Public Experiment Underway: Mapping the Mind thru MetaCartography.
An improvised musical in the style of Stephen Sondheim, creator of INTO THE WOODS, COMPANY, and SWEENEY TODD–musicals known for complex polyphony between multiple characters, romantic duets, show-stopping ensemble pieces. SONDHEIM FOR ONE is all of that with just one improviser and a piano player.
They say music is love in search of a word. The Band of Liars is love in search of music. Based on suggestions from the audience they summon an entire album of improvised songs, never before heard, never to be listened to again. Rap to Classical, Death Metal to Noise to Drone, Madrigal, Folk, and all that jazz.
