Peak Theatre: Six Tenets

  1. Ultimate Experience: A life-altering experience for the audience and the performers must be offered, every time. This is the most important tenet.
  2. Revolutionary Design: The visual and aural aspect of every performance pushes the boundaries of the art. Perfect and life-altering look and sound. To change the world through light, color, depth, tone, melody, emotion.
  3. Physical perfection: Keep the every performer’s instrument in perfectly tuned shape, to ground what must come from the performer and company.
  4. Cultural breadth: Knowledge of all major branches of human knowledge that the performer can call up an immense library of knowledge in performance. Every performance calls up Joyce, Popper, quantum theory or finite automata, serving story & culture.
  5. Situational Dexterity: Having studied every form of improvisation known, the performer can call any one up at will. This includes Commedia, Spolin, Bebop Poet, Jazz, Rap / Hiphop, Slam, & whatnot.
  6. Genre Flexibility: To discover, understand, codify scene, act & work structure of every storytelling genre, & to instantly adopt that genre for use, both overall and within a scene.
