Tantrum’s back for another powerful season of theater and feels. We hope you’re as excited as we are! Our summer festival consists of three dynamic presentations with the first weekend featuring two strikingly different works discussing masculinity and the Black Appalachian experience and an internationally acclaimed art collective on the second weekend.Beyond Words is a one man show starring internationally-acclaimed, multi-disciplinary theatre artist, Bill Bowers. This piece will portray the evolution of a man from a boy, exploring maleness and dissecting how culture informs and influences gender. We will hear from nine distinct voices in Blackbone: 25 Years of the Affrilachian Poets. Collectively, their stories touch on folklore, music, definition of home, and community impact, sharing an often neglected narrative from this region. Our last weekend provides spectacle, fun, and wonder as Berlin-based theater troupe Gob Squad presents Super Night Shot. Meshing elements of theater with the zestfulness of film, the evening is filled with unexpected surprises as the community become co-stars.
