If these days you see folks wild-eyed and gasping right outside the Public Theater, don’t be alarmed: They’re only reeling—happily—from the torrents of experimental performance that Under the Radar brings each January. Co-directors Mark Russell and Meiyin Wang invite some of the most innovative and outré theater and multimedia artists to off-off Broadway for this 12-day orgy of strange. We may not lack for theater shows to see this winter, but Under the Radar is totally unique. Since diversity and surprise are key to Under the Radar’s m.o., it’s not easy to get a handle on the whole enchilada. So we thought we’d break down some of the more intriguing offerings below.
