The Wooster Group
is one of America's most daring and imaginative theater companies. As the New York Times
writes, "throughout its almost 40 unceasingly fertile years of existence, this genre-bending troupe has taken theatergoers through twisting labyrinths of productions, in which reality and its representations are splintered by technology and irony."
Now The Wooster Group engages the work of visionary artist and stage director Tadeusz Kantor, whose theater was born from the fractures of 20th-century Poland and spoke to the world about imagination and history. A PINK CHAIR
is an homage to Kantor and his actors, and a self-reflective take on The Wooster Group's own ecstasy, despair, nostalgia, and memory.
