MXTW is a 5-week workshop for high school students. Part classroom & part production-company, participants study various styles of avant-garde theater, then write & perform original pieces under the influences of the styles they have studied.

The performance on Sunday, June 25th is a special encore performance in which we have invited participants in last year's inaugural Norwegian Experimental Theater Workshop (NExT) in Oslo, Norway to perform some of their work alongside the pieces created in this summer's workshop.
