Tantalus Theatre Group

Tantalus Theatre Group’s mission was to “create profound, intelligent and magical theatre that seeks to incite transformative experiences.” Taking their cue from the mythical Tantalus, who was cursed to stand in water that receded as he leaned toward it and under grapes that rose as he reached for them, the ensemble strove to “reach beyond our limitations and, along with the audience, redefine our relationship to the world.”

Though Tantalus Theatre Group disbanded in 2009, we had many years of great adventures.
