Through extensive research, intense collaboration, questioning and on-going serious play, Phil Soltanoff is committed to exploring what is possible in the live space called theatre. Mining and recombining elements of dance, new media, puppetry, circus, lo-fi technology, visual and sound art, he builds rigorous, innovative performances via juxtaposition. Eschewing psychological realism, embracing theatre’s abstract power and exploring the ‘facts’ or actualities of a performer, an object, a space -- Soltanoff does nothing less than reawaken the quotidien and its conversation with the infinite.
