Break Down the Fourth Wall, Jump-Start Performance Co Presents Better Butter


  • Courtesy
Better Butter is a collection of short plays written and performed by a talented and forward-thinking ensemble of artists: Clint Taylor, Joyous Windrider Jimenez, Fernanda Covarrubias, Lilith Tijerina, Sarah Tijerina, Giovan Lugo and Abel Ramirez.

The meta, fourth-wall-demolishing result of this group’s effort is drama that asks questions of the purpose and framework of drama itself – especially in terms of concepts like “actor,” “character” and “audience.” The experience of Better Butter is a unique one, and one that allows for, or at least attempts to allow for, real interpersonal connection between the folks on stage and the folks in the audience. Which makes sense, since the creators’ stated objective is “to strengthen human connection and build community by directly sharing their experiences with an audience.”

$10, Fri Aug 17-Sat Aug 18, 10pm, Jump-Start Performance Co, 710 Fredericksburg Rd., (210) 227-5867,
