INCOMING! is Under the Radar’s festival within a festival, featuring in-process works of artistic ambition by the wildly diverse artists of the Devised Theater Working Group.
"Who do you think decides what is a big deal and what isn't?"
Sophocles’ Antigone acts as a provocation for this autobiographical unearthing, based on recorded conversations between the artist and her younger brother—a citizen of the still-Wild West, California’s marijuana country. Recalling a time when we were little—as siblings, as a nation, as a democratic system—Our Country interlaces origin mythologies from the Wild West and Ancient Greece with psychoanalytic theory and childhood memories.
Annie Saunders, Wilderness and Tilted Field
Annie Saunders is a director, performer and collaborative live artist. She is the artistic director of Wilderness, which has presented its acclaimed immersive performance The Day Shall Declare It site-specifically in Los Angeles and London in a disused engine shop and the derelict offices of the BBC. The company has also presented work at REDCAT, the San Francisco Playhouse and the Getty Villa and created original commissions for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Opera Omaha. She has devised and performed original work with Neil Bettles (Frantic Assembly), the Lyric Hammersmith, Bush Theatre, Theatre Delicatessen, Latitude Festival, Charing Cross Theatre, and the Cafe de Paris. She is a core collaborator with Lars Jan’s Early Morning Opera and has appeared in Holoscenes, The Institute of Memory (TIMe) and Abacus. She trained at the University of London and RADA.
Wilderness works internationally to push the envelope of the traditional theatre-going experience by creating immersive, experiential and interdisciplinary theatrical events that disrupt the boundaries between observer and observed.
Tilted Field is a theatrical lab for telling stories in bold new ways; we develop, create and produce these stories with the brave artists we’re committed to serving.
Created with crucial early commissions from The Getty Villa and the San Francisco Playhouse, and ongoing development support from piece by piece productions.
