The Wonderstruck Uncut (AKA The Wü) is committed to engaging fresh, gripping, and innovative drama through film that is financially and locationally accessible to all. In doing so, our provocative new works graft the visceral rawness of live theatre onto the perspectival and locational freedom of film.
WHO WE ARE
We are a raw collective of playwrights, directors, actors, and artists of all kinds that believe in the potency of Film-Immersive Theatre.
F.I.T. (Film-Immersive Theatre) is the cornerstone of Wü. It is an unprecedented medium of drama which grafts the visceral rawness of live theatre onto the perspectival and locational freedom of film. FIT is unlike anything you’ve seen, experienced, or been a part of before.
WHAT WE DO
The Wü camera functions in the same way as an audience does in a theater: Both participate, not just strictly observe, a performance. We have no devotion to film realism. There’s high characterization and abstraction, the technicality and lights are present. The performance world and the “real world” are one and the same. Instead of making traditional films for you to watch, we strive to create something that also watches you—an artist-audience relationship that is a signature of live theatre.
The Wü is the first kind of theatre collective that is accessible to all. Our virtual performances are pay-what-you-can from anywhere where internet is available.
Would you dare to be Wü’d?
