UNDER THE RADAR 2021

THE UNDER THE RADAR festival is excited to announce the full line-up of the 2021 Festival, featuring a robust line-up of digital livestream and streaming on-demand performances. 

“The artists in this year’s Under the Radar Festival answer the unprecedented challenges of this time with fearlessness and heart,” shared Under the Radar Festival Director Mark Russell. “We have created a festival where presence is necessary – the elusive communal magic that is theater will come through even if you are facing a screen, on the phone, or in your room. Immediate, international, and vibrant, the 2021 Under the Radar artists point to a future theater that embraces innovation and transformation.”
