WHAT IS OUR PROCESS?
We believe in...
AN ENSEMBLE APPROACH
Each of our performances is the effort of a unique group of collaborators. Not just theatre-makers, but subject experts, responsive audiences, even (we like to think) specific objects and materials. Our flexible working structures aim to catalyse rigorous playfulness. They maintain a safe environment for creative risk and enable nuance in our collective inquiries.
Each project is sustained by long periods of study, interviews, field trips, and conversations. We approach thinking as a process rooted in the body, in emotions, in our environment. We aim for destinations we could not have imagined without everyone involved.
Our work borrows from a variety of disciplines: dance, painting, architecture, literature, music, sculpture, and ensemble theatre. We seek to develop holistic performance languages, re-interpreting traditional concepts of the stage.
ART HISTORICAL AWARENESS
We study, critique, and respond to the history of art in all its forms. In theatre, the companies Goat Island, Complicité, Cricot 2, and Les Ballets C de la B offer us continual inspiration.
