Declared “perennially exciting” and “utterly surprising” by the Washington Post, Pointless Theatre creates innovative, exuberant puppet theatre for adult audiences. Each work is ensemble-developed, drawing on the collaborative strength of company members and local artists alike; one creative team may include writers, designers, choreographers, and painters, and improvisation is often part of the process. Together, ensembles develop two to three original productions each year, inspired by classical drama, era-defining artistic movements, and iconic figures – whether sharing Carmen Miranda’s life story through an original bilingual musical, or reimagining Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in the context of climate change. Committed to removing barriers to the arts, Pointless keeps its artist stipends competitive and tickets affordable. Its bold, visceral productions smash the boundaries between puppetry, theatre, dance, music, and the visual arts. Your support keeps this “unabashedly weird” theatre center stage.
