Tjipetir: A Search History
by University of Texas New Theatre (UTNT)
Mar. 05 - Mar. 13, 2020
An uptight etymologist finds herself on a warped detective case when pieces of rubber begin washing up on beaches all over the world. The single word inscribed on each of them, “TJIPETIR,” leads her on a dizzying expedition into submarine warfare, a Javanese rubber plantation, the history of the internet, an octopus with a vendetta and a dark family secret.
Directed by Jess Shoemaker.
