About the Show
This updated production of Take/Sacrifice was created for (re)FOCUS Fest, a collaboration of four theatre ensembles to explore the concept of privilege through the dialogue of shared performance. Kaleid was joined by Power Street Theatre Company, [redacted] Theater Company, and TS Hawkins.
The revisions included an expanded sound and music landscape, increased character development, and updated myth materials, as our ensemble continued to ask, “what do we want to much that we are willing to destroy each other for it?”
Support for this Production of Take/Sacrifice provided in part by The Philadelphia Cultural Fund.

About (re)FOCUS Fest
(re)FOCUS Fest brings together four theatre ensembles to explore the concept of privilege and to celebrate diversity through shared performance.
Through poetic dialogue, immersive soundscapes, and lyrical movement, Kaleid Theatre, Power Street Theatre Company, [redacted] Theater Company, and TS Hawkins meditate on gender, race, sexuality, class, and everything in between.
(re)FOCUS Fest is a chance to (re)focus on themes that are all around us, but difficult to see, explore, and discuss. It is a celebration of our ability to confront ourselves, learn from each other, and rejoice in the myriad of experiences that make us who we are.
