Bated Breath Theatre Company partners with museums to produce innovative and interactive plays inspired by their exhibitions. Our physical theatre training center is developing a new movement vocabulary for theatre artists.
Some of our recent work has:
- transported audiences to the Moulin Rouge in turn of the century Paris to experience the world of painter Toulouse-Lautrec.
- revived three stories about the African-American struggle for civil rights through song. Our vignettes explore the cultural legacy of slave resistance, the Fisk Jubilee Singers and the role of Marian Anderson in the struggle for desegregation.
- explored the story behind the making of Maurice Sendak’s famous “children’s” book Where the Wild Things Are.
