WHO WE ARE
We are a collective of multi-disciplinary theater artists bonded by a mutual respect for each other’s visions and aesthetics. FullStop Collective works to realize the individual and collaborative endeavors of its members. We’re artists and we’re a production company. We are experimental, diverse and unconventional – and we deliver. Gumption and Gusto.
In the fall of 2005, 29 theater artists from all over the country came together at The National Theater Institute program of The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center for three months of intensive training and education. We studied yoga and tai chi, Shakespeare and Chekhov, Grotowski and the American avant garde. We worked with The Wooster Group and SITI Company, and learned to approach the theater from every angle.
In the winter of 2007, we had a reunion. And while all the cooking, talking and catching up was wonderful, we began to ask when we would work together again. And so the seeds were sown.
In the summer of 2007, we put up two shows under the name FullStop Theater (an homage to our Shakespeare instructor at NTI) – The Silos of Duanesburg in upstate New York and Diving in December for the New York Fringe Festival.
Since then, we have established ourselves as FullStop Collective, a New York based theater company devoted to developing and presenting the innovative work of our members. Check out our projects and news to stay involved!
