In this project the authors created an interdisciplinary theater work. Key elements of the creative process were close collaboration, exploration of alternative performance venues, and integration of artistic mediums. The work evolved from improvisational exercises to generate movement associated with the concepts of ritual, thievery, desire, and the archetype of the trickster. The environment was captured on video and will be included in future live performances in various locations.
