Something Theater was a half-hour television program that was broadcast every few months in the local Milwaukee market, 2009-2011. A collaboration between Bobby Ciraldo and Andrew Swant, who worked as a team, and DR working independently, ST was intended in part to demonstrate how easy it could be to introduce experimentation into mainstream communication culture, simply by buying airtime. The Onion described the show as “all weird, all the time,” which isn’t quite accurate; ST shows conveyed a wide variety of moods. View the Something Theater trailer. View the alternate ST intro.
