The annual Under the Radar Festival is in full swing, and so far, the performances have been phenomenal. Throughout the last decade, Under the Radar has presented more than 140 companies from 36 countries, with this year’s lineup billed to be its most impressive yet. The event will run through January 19th at The Public Theater in Manhattan, and is one that you do not want to miss.

Explains the event coordinators, “Celebrating its 10th Edition, Under the Radar at The Public Theater is an explosively diverse festival of new theater from the U.S. and around the world that spotlights artists ranging from emerging talents to masters in the field. The festival offers a crash course in theater that is exciting, independent, and experimental, created by some of the most dynamic artists working today.” The annual festival is renowned for sparking a vibrant, avant-garde atmosphere, and is proud to serve as a meeting place for some of the most experimental contemporary theater.1389543890467
