THE ANTIDOTE believes live performance succeeds most when it entertains audiences and gives them a puzzle to solve. We blend contemporary pop culture with classic plots to create a new way of telling stories. One that blends timeless tales and viral videos. One that appeals to the fast-paced multi-tasking world we live in.
Our first production - THE HAMLET PROJECT - reimagined the classic play through the lens of daytime TV talk shows, music videos, online blogs, and pharmaceutical websites. HOMO ANDRONICUS turned Titus Andronicus into a combo self-help conference and drag show. GREAT AGAIN paid homage to Ibsen's housewife heroine, blending 1950's sitcoms, dance crazes, and pulp fiction.
