A visceral, highly-stylized, unforgiving tragicomedy of the unfelt. An exploration of the physical and psychological state of feeling numb. What does it mean to be numb? Why are we numb? Is it possible to feel again?

One-Eighth Theater is an internationally-touring company based in NYC. Previous NYC gigs include a three-year residency at INTAR theatre, as well as productions at TerraNova, IRT Theater, and Mabou Mines. They have been a Time Out NY critics pick for their production of UBU and a New York Times critics pick for their adaptation of The Maids by José Rivera. They have toured or created work in Poland, Japan, United Kingdom, Lithuania, Germany, Turkey, Romania, Korea, and Puerto Rico. Founded in 2008 by Artistic Directors Daniel Irizarry and Laura Butler Rivera, One-Eighth is inspired by Hemingway’s Iceberg Theory. It’s the alluring idea that some things are better left unexplained or open to interpretation. The tip of an iceberg is only one-eighth of what’s there, so much more lies beneath the surface. oneeighth.org
