Harlequino: On To Freedom
Daguan Theater - Himalayas Center | 大观舞台 , 3 Mon 10 Oct 2016 - Sun 13 Nov 2016

This event has now passed.

Academy Award-winning actor, director, writer and activist Tim Robbins (Mystic River, The Shawshank Redemption) is also the founding director of experimental theater group The Actors' Gang, which has produced more than 100 innovative plays since its formation in 1981. Robbins' latest work as writer and director is Harlequino: On to Freedom, a genre-defying new play at The Ivy Substation in which a group of rogue actors hijack a professor's lecture and slideshow on the classic Italian comedy form commedia dell'arte. The actors' perception of the commedia is quite different from the good doctor, and their conflict becomes a battle for the soul of the comedic form -- questioning the purpose of art, how history is written, what's funny (and what's not) and what it means to be free.
