What is hanger?
We are new here.
hanger hangs on the edge of theatre and performance art, making multi-media, immersive pieces essaying on a topic.
Where narrative-based theatre might be said to provide audiences with things to think about, we aim to provide our audience with themes to think with.
hanger recognises its participants (performers + audience) as artists; we like to understand and interrogate performance as content/reality, as opposed to performance as dissembling content/reality. This is performance-theatre; there are no illusions.
Life as/is (an) art, basically.
hanger is not a theatre collective/group - rather, it is an exhibition space for hangers and the art they(you?) put on. Like any exhibition space, hanger is also a social event, and socialising is a huge part of what we aim to do - and continue to do, post-performance.
Be new with us.
What is on intimacy?
