We are extremely excited to introduce our fabulous artists for this 2022 season. The pandemic has done strange things to art and our perception of the world and this wonderful group has taken those moments and each created something special, be it about the trials of solitude or more recent political events.
On his deathbed, Osher found spirit in autoplay—as he was hooked up to oxygen and lost the ability to speak, he watched hours and hours of Kabbalah YouTube. The Kabbalah of anger, forgiveness, of loss. He stopped acknowledging the presence of his daughter, Leye, and his husband, Sender. And then he died. Now, months after his passing, Leye visits the local Kabbalah Center, fueled by a desire to understand this change in her father. She reunites with Khonen, a childhood friend, who incites her own series of desires in Leye that lead, eventually, to her possession. In this new adaptation of S. An-sky's The Dybbuk, we travel through time (and web servers) to witness whether Leye and Sender can grapple with the loss of a loved one turned stranger.
Female Complaints is a new musical about ambition, persistance, and illegal abortion. Inez Ingenthron was raised in one of the poorest immigrant communities in turn-of-the-century San Francisco and became a highly skilled, sought-after abortionist and one of the wealthiest women in California. Inez successfully managed to get the law to look the other way, until Pat Brown, the District Attorney of San Francisco, targeted her in his rise to power. As Pat singled out abortion in his crackdown on vice, he made Inez’s downfall a personal mission. At a time when reproductive rights are diminishing in the United States, Female Complaints highlightsthe world that we’re in danger of living in once again.
Dick and Jane are bored on a rainy Sunday afternoon. A six-foot tall cat shows up, and hijinks ensue. Later, elsewhere, Dick and Jane are bored on a rainy Sunday afternoon. A six-foot tall cat shows up, and hijinks ensue. Everywhere, space is a false vacuum waiting to decay. Try not to think about it while your boredom gnaws away at you. We Do the Same Thing Every Week is a one-act comedy about repetition, boredom, and the delicious, refreshing taste of Coca-Cola®.
you are not alone (but you can be if you want to) will be an interactive installation piece exploring the ongoing action of healing from trauma. Participants will try out different paths to catharsis, moving individually but alongside others. Options include the Room of Destruction, Bad Art, The Crying Bathroom, and more
Vox is an experimental art and theater company founded in 2012 by three Dartmouth College Alumni. We create space for alumni to experiment, immerse students in the process of creating new work, and aim to build a more connected community for alumni in the arts.
Produced by Vox Theater, VoxLab is a developmental laboratory in residence at Dartmouth College, focused on fostering live arts projects by Dartmouth alumni. During the week-long retreat in Hanover, alumni artists develop their works-in-progress in collaboration with current undergraduates.
