The spirit of Out There is alive and well in Boxing 2000, a new work by iconoclastic New York creator Richard Maxwell, whose directorial approach strips theater back to its minimal essentials, unearthing the poignantly dark humor and emotion that dwells in the lives of these outer-fringe American figures. Masterfully shaping silences, deadpan dialogue, and perhaps the most unusual boxing match ever staged, this oddly compelling modern-day urban fable offers a slice of the life inside and out of the ring. One of the freshest theatrical innovators working today, Maxwell is in demand throughout Europe and around the world.
