ABOUT FREAM UP – TNC’s Summer Showcase                                              The motto of the Festival is “Dream Up: Invent, Concoct.” The festival is dedicated to new works. The question of the artist’s vision to free or attack the material will be asked to each application. The festival does not want traditional theater which is presented in the traditional way. Theater for the New City wants to use this festival as a way to
push ideas to the forefront with the hope of revealing roads less traveled or undiscovered. Presentation of a straightforward play must be imaginative in some way.
