is an experimental collective of artists dedicated to creating new multimedia theatre with a social conscience. As a community of creators, our collective strives to synthesize voice, text, movement, sound, video and visual design into a single, harmonious performance experience for spectator and performer alike. Directors, designers and performers collaborate in a unique process to develop each show, resulting in truly ensemble-driven work.
Since our inception in 1997, one of the goals of Synaesthetic Theatre has been to reach out to the NYC community through workshops in collaborative creation techniques. These workshops provide opportunities for us to meet and work with new artists, as well as share the techniques which we utilize in our development and rehearsal processes. Synaesthetic generally offers two one-day Viewpoints workshops led by company members each year, designed for performers and directors who want an introduction to the work, as well as those who are familiar with the technique and wish to revisit it. The upcoming Boundless Improv intensive marks the second time that we have produced a workshop for Master Teachers Beavers and Wangh, and the first for Sokolov (all three of whom trained over half of the members of our collective). We are very excited to be able to support the dissemination of their inspiring work!
