I AM THEATRE: Isaiah Tanenbaum

Monday, September 12, 2011 Leave a Comment

We're continuing our participation in the I AM THEATRE initiative launched by TCG with Member Isaiah Tanenbaum. If you haven't already, be sure to also check out Carissa Cordes' video.

Isaiah auspiciously began his time with Flux by playing Gutty, the obese, single-minded deposed despot of an imaginary country in Rue. How to top that? He's gone on to play roles like Clarin (Life is a Dream), Flute (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Enoch (Angel Eaters), Lee (The Lesser Seductions of History), The Messenger (Jacob's House) and Aimes in our upcoming production of Menders. Along the way, he's photographed almost everything that moves, designed postcards, written some plays, helped run Have Anothers and ForePlays, and been an engine of Flux Sundays.

In other words, he may very well be theatre, and he is certainly Flux. We're very happy we let him finish the joke...

(One thing Isaiah also does well is games...proof above from our 6th retreat.)
