The Operating Theater Company, entertains audiences with unusual, inventive, provocative performance, creating art that can only be fully experienced in a live forum. We experiment with perception and explore the visceral subjectivity of human experience.

  • The Oracle* (at The Brick)
  • Transatlantica by Kenny Finkle (at New York Theatre Workshop's Fourth Street Theatre)
