About the Ticket Supplier: Schkapf

Schkapf is an incubation house for curious performances & other experiences. The word “Schkapf” is a nonsense word but it bears a close similarity to a Russian word that could be translated as a wardrobe, armoire, cupboard, or any variation on this theme. Located inside a former automotive garage and a machine shop for rifles, Schkapf is always transforming, evolving, changing, all the while remaining a gestation apparatus for new performance installments, a fairground for the new day polymaths, and a watering hole for poets and jesters.

Schkapf’s particular penchant might best be described as non-dramatic theater. They have a real relish for crafted experiences that mix and fuse oft-archaic forms of clown, bouffon, magic, and puppetry into various styles of presentation such as cabaret, farce, vaudeville, carnival, street parade, immersive theater, a wedding or a wake. Our curiosity is most piqued when a project disrupts or blows apart entirely the conventions of theater with the use of other human canons: anthropology, architecture, physics, animation, cinema, folk traditions, poetry, etc.
