The boldly poetic script of THEATRE: A LOVE STORY, peels back layers of storytelling convention and artifice to expose the raw beating heart of performance, is presented in collaborative production that blurs the lines between theatre and film and which draws on the strength of Cincinnati’s artistic community with multiple directors, a local cast, and collaboration with the dance company Pones, Inc.
THEATRE: A LOVE STORY will stream online February 26 through March 27.
