Year of the Tiger
by University of Texas Theatre & Dance
Mar. 24 - Mar. 26
On the eve of the anniversary of the COVID-19 global pandemic, a news anchor is preparing for a special transmission commemorating the year that has gone by when she is visited by a tiger who really wants her to get the story straight, no matter what the cost.
Composed of interviews with workers impacted by the pandemic, viral videos, official declarations and a tiger, Year of the Tiger is a blend of fact and fiction that seeks to respond to some of the troubling and often unbelievable events of the past year. This investigation explores not only the impact of COVID-19 worldwide, but also civil unrest, police brutality and the Trump administration's war with truth.
This piece was created as a collaborative work by members of the production team in response to recent global events. Special thanks to all involved for their contribution to the development of this work and to those who participated in interviews about their personal experiences with the pandemic.
