NEW DECADE, NEW DARLO.
EXPERIENCE YOUR SENSES, AWAKENED.
WELCOME TO OUR 2020 SEASON.
Our 2020 season seriously ramps it up and is full of people doing the extraordinary and the unique. It’s a celebration of the theatrical. It’s a celebration of life and humanity. It’s a response to the here and now and a rapidly changing world, where information is at our finger-tips 24/7. Where pictures of cute animals sit beside pictures of disaster and where self-absorbed world leaders impact the globe with strange thoughtless tweets.
So what is the role of live performance in a world that churns out giga bytes of content every millisecond? For me and our company, its role is still the same as it has been for a very long time. It is to provoke, to inspire, to create empathy, to commune and to celebrate our humanity. But in 2020 it’s vital that theatrical experiences be just that - theatrical.
It must be live, immersive, impactful and visceral. It must be an experience you won’t get sitting on the couch watching on-demand TV or your Facebook feed. Our 2020 program is full of immersive theatrical experiences and we will take you somewhere special - that's a promise.
