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, and beer to engage the communities in the cultures they encounter during their endless world tour. 

Traveling the world to gather

The truth in the lies

The music in the noise

And drink the beer.

Join in the communion as they tell traditional tales, share songs, and drink beers from different regions--Ireland, Japan, and Tucson!


Episode 2: Ireland features the music of Claire Zucker!





Mission: Theatre 3 believes in embracing joy and the human experience to create original, imaginative works that serve and engage the community through collaboration and the expansion of the possibilities of performance. 


History: Founded in 2009, Theatre 3 specializes in ensemble-created physical theatre. In the 2012-13 season, this ensemble is focused on creating new work for the Etcetera stage. The artists of Theatre 3 bring a passion for character, love for the physical, and spirit of exploration and discovery to all of their work.


Praise for Theatre 3 ‘s Theatrum Orbis Terrarum

“This is really not theater in the traditional sense. Well, actually it is theater in the traditional sense, but not necessarily in the modern sense. Don't come expecting a totally scripted, locked-down play. Yet it is a play. It's an experience, one in which we all participate (and no, you don't have to get up onstage). And it is great fun. [...] So we gather, sipping our brews—as do Swerf, Alulu and Iznik—and we begin our journey, which is casual but purposeful, ordered yet spontaneous, lighthearted but profound. [...] This is going to be a unique, creative, captivating and thoroughly entertaining tour.”

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: Is each episode different?

A: Yes! Theatrum Orbis Terrarum has a ritual opening & closing that remains the same for each show, but the “meat and potatoes” of the show is the part that changes. There will be new stories and music for each episode!


Q: Are you traveling to Turkey, Ireland, Japan, Tucson?

A: Yes! Well, theatrically of course. Each episode is focused on a specific country (or city), and it’s our goal to “transport” the audience to that country for a little while through the history, stories, music, and beer.


Q: Wait. Beer?

A: Yes! Theatrum Orbis Terrarum has procured a special events license in order to serve beer during the show. In fact, a good section of the show is about beer and the community it brings, and so it will be important for you to have a drink with us so we can toast each other. And it will be beer specific to each location. Rebecca from Tap & Bottle is curating the beverages for us.


Q: What if i don’t drink?

A: Don’t worry. Our beverage servers have a unique non-alcoholic beverage to “wet your whistle.” And it will still play into the theme of the region!


Q: Do i need to show my I.D.?

A: Yes, we will be checking I.D.s and we have security staff in place as well.


Q: What is the show like?

A: It’s going to be a lot of fun. Think storytelling meets music meets ritual meets the pub. Plus each episode will have special features ranging from puppets to masks to special guests artists. And always beer.


Q: How much?

A: Tickets are $12. Beverages are $5. If you buy your first beer with your ticket, you get a special deal of $15 for both. Additional drinks are $5 a piece.


Q: Can i help?

A: Yes! We need ushers for upcoming episodes. And please tell all of your friends about this show!


See you at Theatrum Orbis Terrarum!
