OCTP Co-Produces “Codebreakers” with Theater Ninjas


Theater Ninjas continue their tenth year of out-of-the-ordinary
experiences with Broken Codes, an immersive performance of new works melding dance, theater, music, video art, and game design with stories of digital life. This collection of multi-media short-form work by Cleveland artists highlights the conflicted relationship between technology and modern life, exploring the themes of women in tech, artificial intelligence, and the evolutionary effects of the internet.

Broken Codes showcases an impressive roster of local Cleveland creators including Marcia Custer, Lauren Joy Fraley, Eric M. C. Gonzalez, Christopher Hisey, Val Kozlenko, Ryan Lucas, Jeremy Paul, and OCTP’s own Pandora Robertson. Pandora will premiere an original play entitled “Codebreakers.”

“Codebreakers” tells the story of three female cryptology analysts working at Bletchley Park in Britain, where the German secret code was broken during WWII.

Thoughts on Incendiaries…

We loved what Rio Adlai Alesana had to say about Incendiaries!
I would like to congratulate Pandora Robertson on her amazing production of Incendiaries at the Cleveland Public Theatre. As a Hough resident I truly feel that she and the cast so accurately portrayed the racial climate of 1960s Cleveland that I absolutely felt that a hidden truth had been brought to light. This play was an extraordinary piece of theatre that sparked so many conversations between me and the people I associate with and I am grateful it was realized. Thank you again.
