Article about Psittacus Productions published in MuseumViews!
Check out this fascinating article about Psittacus Productions and "A TALE TOLD BY AN IDIOT" in Homa Nasab's excellent journal, "MuseumViews."
"The rich theatrical heritage and vast body of experience of Psittacus’ creative members promise to inject much-needed life and vibrancy into the vanishing world of Classical Theatre. The company’s mission is “to create innovative theatre art to share with the community, and to investigate the ways in which modern life and technology affect the way we tell stories.” In other words, Psittacus has set out to unveil and stage the corpus of our collective memories – as embodied in classic Western literature – in the highly stylized and aesthetized form of theatre via Web 3.0, smart phones, and other technological apparatus."

Homa T. Nasab is an American art historian, curator & museologist who recently completed her doctoral dissertation in Museum Studies at Oxford University. The foundations of her research and interests in visual arts are extensively rooted in early modern theatre (Stella Adler’s Conservatory), film & sculpture (BA – UMass Boston), museology (CMS – Harvard), 19th-21st century fine arts (MA – Courtauld Institute) and histories of museums & collecting (MSt. & D.Phil – Oxford). In recent years, Nasab’s academic investigations have focused on the development of the art market & formation of museums in emerging markets. Her academic training has given Nasab solid grounding in the aesthetics, economics and management of public and private art collections on a global scale with a particular focus on how to maximize multiple values of an art collection.
