It’s said that theater at its most basic level needs only two people to occur: one person to do something and another person to watch. But while stages, costumes, props and lighting may be technically inessential, they sure do change the way we feel about a performance. Take Living Room Theater, for example. Thespians Tisse Mallon, Banks Helfrich and Jack Graham have been performing experimental pieces of theater in people’s living rooms, using the intimacy of the familiar spaces to connect closely with the audience as they act out scenes that range from comedic sketches to uncomfortable examinations of domestic violence. It’s a form of theater that doesn’t eschew the basics, but makes you highly aware of just how much effect the surroundings have on the experience. And you could find worse living rooms to experience it in than Timucua’s cozy performance space.
