• ITI’s “Extremities”: Routes for Escape and Redemption

    13 Dec 2018

    'In this staging of William Mastrosimone’s Extremities, directed by Aarne Neeme and performed by the Intercultural Theatre Institute’s graduating class of 2018, the assertion of power, control and violence that is at the heart of sexual assault plays out swiftly and fully in front of us, leaving us with little option but to bear witness, with our eyes and our ears, unless we choose to leave the theatre. Once the initial shock of the thwarted rape attempt eases a little, we are confronted with the play’s central dilemma — there’s no evidence, just her word against his. Now what?'

  • Yes, I Go to Acting School

    24 Oct 2018

    'ITI continues with its vision of trying to discover ways of allowing interculturality to exist on stage. The question that is often asked of us is, "In a world where we often try to suppress or iron out differences to create a veneer of sameness, how can we change to look at all our differences as something worthy of working with and of sharing?"'

  • Review: When We Dead Awaken by Intercultural Theatre Institute

    18 Mar 2018

    'When We Dead Awaken is by no means an easy watch, and its slow script is a challenging one for its cast to get just right. However, push past its initial difficulty and you’ll find a wealth of meaning lying within each movement and image on stage. With this production, [Sankar] Venkateswaran is certainly pushing the limits of excellence expected of ITI students, with the artistic risks paying off immensely in the moments they succeed and bringing out Ibsen’s themes in a whole new light.'
