From the artists who created MixTape . . .
Theatrum Orbis Terrarum--the traveling troupe of Iznik, Swerf, and Alulu Ortelius--presents the “Theatre of the World.” This bizarre family uses a blend of music, storytelling, puppets, masks, and beer to engage the communities in the cultures they encounter during their endless world tour. Join in the communion as they tell traditional tales, share songs, and drink beers from different regions--Turkey, Ireland, and Japan--and bring some of your favorite stories to be featured in the final installment all about Tucson!
Episode 1: Turkey features the dance of Danielle van Dobben & the percussion of Bruce Stanley!

Praise for Theatre 3 ‘s MixTape
**2012 MAC Award Special Mention**
“There is no doubt that something unusual, fresh, challenging and entertaining has been introduced into our already-thriving theater community.”
“In its simplicity, it is grand. In its creativity, it is a pleasure. As a joint venture—because Walley and Horchem engage so genuinely with us—Theatre 3's MixTape rocks.” ~Sherilyn Forrester, Tucson Weekly
“This introduction of Theatre 3 at Etcetera has enticed us enough that we are anxious to see what they do next.”
~Kathy Allen, Arizona Daily Star
“And now for something completely different – a charming evening of
humor, theater and acrobatic dance performed with intelligence.”
~Chuck Graham, Tucson Stage
