Radix_beutfl carats


VANCOUVER, BC A�A�a�� If the first two sold-out shows in the Obstructions theatre series are any indication, Radix Theatrea��s turn in the spotlight on July 28 will be a hot ticket.


Inspired in part by the film The Five Obstructions, by JA?rgen Leth and Lars Von Trier, Obstructions is a new project from the group of theatre companies known as Progress Lab, producers of the wildly popular and innovative HIVE series. Over the coming months, one company creates an eveninga��s entertainment based on some creative “obstructions” devised in secret meetings by the rest of the group.


Last month Felix Culpa gave us an artistic marriage ceremony in a controversial 100 words.A� Radix takes up the challenge with these obstructions:


1. Andrew (Laurenson) must revisit and answer the central question of Beautiful Prblms

2. In the style of French farce

3. Using a set made of carrots


Will they pass or fail in working with these limitations?A� You help decide!


Extra rad: at each Obstructions show the next theatre company on the list receives their obstructions, delivered under a spotlight by a shadowy emcee. Theatre Conspiracy is next in the hot seat.
