abstract

  • Three Zuppa Theatre Co. collaborators consider the creation of the company's recent work, The Archive of Missing Things. They discuss the creative process, the tenuous relationship between intention and accident, and the relationship of the performance to a previous work, Pop-Up Love Party. The discussion hinges on the notion of 'ambient drama,' which situates the performance event discreetly within an environment, functioning as it regularly does, in an attempt to facilitate interaction between the theatrical and the ordinary.
