Once upon a time theater was created to be 'the seeing place' (Greek translation of the word theatron) - a gathering of a people to talk about socio-political issues of the times, to see themselves reflected in the stories being told. The whole community participated and 'the seeing place' quickly became the mirror holding itself up to humanity, with actors taking their place as vibrant living historians of mankind.
Now, theater as we know it is in danger of becoming extinct, accessible only to the wealthy and so polished that the dizzying depths and rough edges of humanity are wiped squeaky clean.
The Seeing Place Theater is here to rebel against the status quo and bring theater back to its rightful place at the center of the conversation.
