Meet our Founding Artists, Producers and Project Visionaries
Convergences Theatre Collective is a group of pioneering theatre artists and innovative teachers dedicated to creating original work and re-envisioning classics.
We started 2020 with a new look and logo. We are thrilled to invite you to our new virtual home as well as introduce you to our new brand. Our team worked strategically and thoughtfully to bring our creative vision to life in the new Convergences Theatre Collective brand. The new logo mark “C” represents an open circle, that both protects and nurtures our mission and vision, while remaining open to new ideas. The “nesting” set of “Cs” allow for flow and space for inspiration and communication between roles along the supporting lines of connective fiber of our group. Each of the 4 "C's" represent key components of the brand, moving from the inside out:
CORE The foundational base that supports all movement.
COLLECTIVE The mechanism or engine of movement and work.
COLLABORATORS The source of the need for something to be moved.
COMMUNITY The many who are the recipient and the gifters of movement.
OUR MISSION IS TO:
Work as a collective: engaging in continual training, creating new forms of theatrical language and education, and cultivating theatre artists in a wide variety of performance genres through process, product, and dialogue
Create new theatrical work from an interdisciplinary perspective and to re-envision the classics for contemporary audiences
Challenge the traditional roles of theatre makers and audiences
Provide innovative training to current and aspiring theatre artists
Create a community that is rooted in contemplative practices in and out of the rehearsal and performance workspaces
Produce work that is beautiful, challenging and entertaining for regional, national, and international audiences
CTC is based in New York City, and our artists represent and reside in diverse geographic locations. We meet for training, collaboration, producing, and developing new work. We partner with additional organizations and artists as we exist as a community who share a common desire for successful, challenging, and thoughtful theatrical experiences.
CTC is the endeavor of Jeremy Williams to create an organization that serves the many collaborative relationships that contribute to fulfilling the mission of CTC. Williams provides leadership as Producing Director by setting the artistic agenda, leading creative strategy, and directing the producing vision.
CTC is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas.
