Grapefruit Lab

multimedia performance & theater ensemble @ the interwebz

Grapefruit is a hybrid of lemon and orange. Snow is hybrid of wish and lament. — Yoko Ono

A Performance Laboratory

Julie, Kenny, and Miriam have been working together since 2007, under a range of different names and companies – most notably Vicious Trap, a catch-all moniker for our various interests.

Grapefruit Lab is the new combined vision and multimedia intersection of our work. Grapefruit Lab’s name encapsulates our goal of combining highly-aesthetic, compelling artistic work embeded in our communities.

We want to make art without assumptions – art that humanizes and entertains and challenges and brings you into conversation.

Outside The Room @ Denver Center for the Performing Arts

A family struggles to find humanity and normalcy in a world made uncertain and strange after the transformation and “othering” of one of their own. This physical theatre piece imagines what happens on the other side of the iconic door in Kafka’s Metamorphosis.

JANE/EYRE @ The Bakery

We are not here to flatter egotism, or prop up humbug; we are merely telling the [queer] story. We value what is good in the book; but we believe in the existence of other, and more vivid kinds of goodness.
