Ryan Whinnem, the artistic director, had extensive conversations with the playwright, Erik Ehn, about the right amount and tone to set in order give a comprehensive view of Ehn's work but also to establish the company's mojo. Those conversations paid off. Performances included: Medusa Christ, Buttonwillow, A Child's Drawing of a Monster, Equiprobalism, One Eye Gone, and Patti Page. Performers included: Kyle Metzger*, Selby Brown (shown)*, Matt Clevy*, Veronique Hurley, Kendra Webb, Christen Madrazo, Jason Burke, and Eli Sibley (shown). Sets, lights and music were designed by Lilia Trenkova, Dan Jobbins, and Jonathon Roberts respectively.

Our second productionwasn't actually a production, but a fundraiser, reviving an ancient art form, the masque. Written by Stephen Spotswood, we took over a midtown Chashama space. What is a masque? It's a scripted performance that incorporates performers, dance and music; it culminates in a performance by all participants, including the audience. Sounds fun, right? It was.
Our performers included Meaghan Burke, Emily Ruth Hazel, Spark and Echo and Broken Box Mime Theater. In addition, we had the talents of the amazing Anna Marie Sell and Diana Cherkas.
