This annual festival, produced by The Public Theater, celebrates its 12th anniversary in 2016. It features a variety of new theater from the United States and around the world, including countries like Spain, Brazil, the UK and Iran. This year, expect a new twist on theater with Germinal, which utilizes four actors and a stage to imagine the emergence of civilization—from the birth of the laws of physics to the construction of language to social conventions. With a lineup that includes emerging talents and masters in the field, Under the Radar offers a crash course in exciting, independent and experimental theater, created by some of the most dynamic artists working today.
