Tristan Tzara Was My Best Friend In Junior High

Savannah Reich

Theater, Immersive/Interactive Experience


A new Passover Seder as designed by the Dadaist poet Tristan Tzara. Instead of telling the Passover story, this ritual commemorates the time that all the other Dadaists decided to stop doing Dada and go and invent Surrealism, and Tristan Tzara was not invited. The audience is invited to sit around the dinner table, drink four glasses of wine, and be a part of this immersive meditation on community, friendship and loss.

From the creator of "Oedipus in Seattle", winner of an overall Fringie award in Theater in the 2022 Philly Fringe.
