About One-Eighth Theater

One-Eighth Theater creates new, bold, international theater. Founded in 2008 by Artistic Directors Daniel Irizarry and Laura Butler Rivera, One- Eighth is inspired by Hemingway’s Iceberg Theory. It’s the alluring idea that some things are better left unexplained or open to interpretation. The tip of an iceberg is only one-eighth of what’s there, so much more lies beneath the surface. This idea of abstract possibilities is applied to all things One Eighth. One-Eighth currently is part of the New Ohio Theater and IRT’s two-year Archive Residency. From participating in soloNOVA’s theater festival to performing at IRT, from two Mabou Mines residencies to creating an original piece at Bilkent University with Turkish actors, One-Eighth is constantly pushing theatrical boundaries. Japan, United Kingdom, Lithuania, Germany, Turkey, Romania, Korea, Puerto Rico, New York City—One-Eighth also travels the world offering workshops and kicking ass sharing their theatrical pieces.
