Festival Description

Under the Radar (UTR) is an annual theater festival that spotlights international artists ranging from emerging talents to masters in the field. The festival is a wild mix of works by ensembles, solo artists, writers, and creators. UTR is a project of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, produced by Mark Russell and The Public Theater in New York City. The ultimate goal of UTR is to offer a crash course in theater that is exciting, independent, and experimental, created by some of the most dynamic artists working today. In its three-year history, UTR has presented 35 productions from over 12 different countries. Some artists who have collaborated with UTR include Anne Bogart and the SITI Company, Cynthia Hopkins, Elevator Repair Service, Nature Theater of Oklahoma, The Old Trout Puppet Workshop, Teatro De Los Andes, and many more. The UTR Festival and Symposium is a project of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, produced by Mark Russell and The Public Theater in New York City.
