No. ∞ Symphony (The Tale of Sisyphus) Conceptualization  For the object theatre performance, we are required to create an object theatre performance based on a tale or myth story. Fanni, Caleb and I almost immediately agree on recreating the story, morale, and attitude of Sisyphus.  We decided to focus on our shared, modern boulders - the routines, tasks, problems that we loop and cycle… Continue reading No. ∞ Symphony (The Tale of Sisyphus)
