Description

Part of the 2019 Fringe Festival. 

Refineries, dams, and wastewater treatment plants tower over us and sprawl beneath us. These massive works of infrastructure seem almost anti-human in their complexity and scale—like machines that run themselves—but they are the beating hearts that allow a city to function.

A world premiere by acclaimed Fringe veterans Pig Iron Theatre Company (A Period of Animate ExistencePay UpWelcome to Yuba City) and award-winning designer Mimi Lien, Superterranean is a new work of visual theater driven by Lien’s fascinations with urban infrastructure acting in concert with the human body.

On the outskirts of an unknown city, massive structures emerge from the murk. Here, nine performers embody our hunger for permanence, our dreams of utopia, and the melancholy contemplation of our skin, our organs, and our deepest urges.
