Theater to Stream: Festivals, Festivals, Festivals

The Under the Radar, Prototype and Exponential festivals are ready to open our minds with experimental work, even if their doors are shut.

By Elizabeth Vincentelli

“Until the pandemic occurred in 2020, many of us perhaps did not realize how much theater relies on appointments. Now that most of them have vanished, with theater — and time itself — becoming somewhat amorphous, it’s comforting to see that the January festivals are still happening.

Once cursed as the sluggish period of the year that follows the holiday rush, January has slowly turned into a hyperactive showcase for experimental work. And so it remains this year. While the doors remain physically shut, our minds can still open up.”
