The 16th annual Under the Radar festival kicked off January 8, filling the Public Theater, La MaMa, and other venues with cutting-edge work from around the world.

The 2020 festival offers New York theatregoers a chance to see The Movement Theatre Company's critically acclaimed production of Aleshea Harris' What to Send Up When It Goes Down, as well as Amir Nizar Zuabi's Grey Rock, a play about a Palestinian man who dreams of launching into space.

The lineup also features overseas hits like Selina Thompson's salt., in which two artists retrace one of the routes of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle—previously seen at London's Royal Court—and the Wang Chong-helmed Constellations, Nick Payne's Broadway play re-imagined by the Beijing-based Théâtre du Rêv Expérimental with live video (and a live hamster).
