Radiohole

“[Radiohole] turns out effervescent, anarchic work . . . cultivates an eccentric acting style and makes familiar text creepily bizarre.” —Time Out

Known for its radical and reckless theatricality, avant-garde New York troupe Radiohole’s newest work is a star-spangled American meta-melodrama inspired by film director Douglas Sirk’s 1950s potboilers and Milton’s epic Paradise Lost. Our heroine is an all- American “Eve” who must save her home from an evil-doer while struggling to find fulfillment in a lasting relationship with a supposedly good man who looks like god. Radiohole’s newest synthesis of cultural flotsam is sure to be bawdy, silly, possibly transcendent, and a touch disturbed. The company received the 2009 Spalding Gray Award, a commissioning collaboration between New York’s PS122, Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum, UCLA Live, and the Walker (last year’s award went to National Theater of the United States of America to create Chautauqua!, the runaway hit of Out There 2009).
