+ More About Us.
When fabricating we aim to prioritize ergonomic and comfort considerations thereby allowing for more confident and fluid manipulation by the performers.
When directing and performing we aim to ensure a visceral connection between the performer and the object, which creates an environment in which the audience willingly suspends disbelief and becomes fully immersed into the emotional aspects of the production.
We're always working on new ways to innovate our techniques and expand our skillset. Check out some of the other projects we've been working on.
We make a point to collaborate with some of the most talented people in the industry. Working with everyone from traditional artists and craftspeople to designers and creative technologists, collaboration keeps our work fresh and dynamic.
