Michael + Patrick make plays, performances, and videos about their mutual obsessions. Their pieces draw on a range of material like modern drama, reality television, American method acting, technology, dance, and original text. Underlying the duo’s work is a constant investigation into theatrical form–how to subvert and manipulate it–and theater’s relationship to the other media that dominates our lives: television, Instagram, FaceTime, and Hollywood movies.
Their work has been seen at New York Theater Workshop Next Door (This American Wife), Ars Nova’s ANT Fest, the Exponential Festival in Brooklyn (A Doll’s House, Part 3), and Yale Cabaret. Stay tuned for news of upcoming productions! Michael + Patrick are currently members of Ars Nova’s Makers Lab.
