Under the Radar: Otto Frank
Obie Award-winning collaborators Roger Guenveur Smith and Marc Anthony Thompson have devised a new work inspired by Otto Frank, the father of diarist Anne Frank. Smith's intimate meditation, scored live by Thompson, illuminates our present moment through a rigorous interrogation of our not-so-distant past. Smith's Frank addresses his daughter beyond her time and his own. Presented in partnership with OKC Rep and The Public Theater.

SQUID is a work of dance theater centering on the intimacy contained in the imaginary space of two people trapped at the bottom of the ocean. SQUID is partly inspired by Vampyroteuthis Infernalis (“vampire squid from hell”) by Viliém Flusser and Louis Bec. Described as “part scientific treatise, part spoof, part philosophical discourse, part fable,” the authors suggest a powerful and ancient relationship between humans and vampyroteuthes.
