Identity. This theme pervades all art forms in every time. Why? Because nothing reflects the human experience like exploring who we are as individuals.

“The Infinite Ceiling" - Dobama Theatre’s blog on all things theatre because the thoughts generated by both creating and experiencing art are truly never-ending. Whether it’s an examination of how theatre is made, commenting on the stories being brought to the stage through theatre, or connecting with the people that are creating theatre, the ideas spawned by this art form are as endless as the human experience.
