A Secret Dinner Party: Squares of Grass
with WAVE Productions, June 2017
As a culmination of his time as the Artistic Director of WAVE Productions, Hartman joined a team of devisers for WAVE's annual 24-Hour Theatre festival. Presented as a series of conceptual vignettes, the result was one part The Little Prince, one part Mad Hatter's tea party, and included everything from a bra-burning to a head-shaving. Hartman's contributions asked questions about space and identity, both as a student amongst the Neo-Brutalist behemoths of Northwestern University and as a queer person navigating the farcical hell-scape of dating apps.
