The main objective of AAT is to create a countercultural art movement that produces open and provocative work. The theater pieces produced are to provoke the viewer to look for the truth, to challenge the dogmas and, most importantly, to always ask inconvenient questions. It is important for us to help the youth that is frustrated with the consumerist lifestyle to create new culture as a free autonomous exploration space without censorship and boundaries. Our theater aims to dismantle stagnant theater poise, to break stereotypes, to move away from well known and unknown cliches of theater and to remove ourselves from knowing. AAT aims to create theater socially and therefore escape the black box theater by performing in alternatives spaces, venues and common everyday spaces that additionally become somewhat a scenography for the theater performances.
AAT does not merely read act the play out. The performaces are ironic, loosely structured and the isolation of stage action is constantly being broken. The performaces are rather sketches that finished pieces so that the viewer has an oppurtunity to feel one’s existance, has freedom to think and contemplate and is released from the abusive pressure of rigid norms and restrictions of the conventional play. We aim to gradually ease the tention for the viewer in order for him to concentrate on the presence of the actors and their physical actions, explore conceptual references rather than to fixate on the supposed pre-emtive acting based on theater cliches. Our viewer is expected to collect impressions and images, keep the attention loose and free-flowing rather that to instantly understand what is being witnessed on stage.
