The Wooster Group is an ensemble of experimental theater artists now in its 36th year. Situated in the worlds of dance, visual, media, and theatrical arts, the Group’s work is part of radical post-modern experiments that originated in the mid-seventies. In the Group’s pioneering productions, texts and technology are interwoven to tell stories in new ways. Director Elizabeth LeCompte in collaboration with the company’s performers and technical artists has made more than 30 works for theater, film, and video, including Rumstick Road (1977), L.S.D. (…Just the High Points…)(1984), Brace Up! (1991), House/Lights(1999), To You, The Birdie! (Phèdre) (2002), Who’s Your Dada?! (2006), Hamlet (2007), There is Still Time..Brother (2007), the opera La Didone (2008) and The Wooster Group’s Version of Tennessee Williams’ Vieux Carré (2011). The Group has toured in the U.S. and to Europe, Russia, Canada, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia. The Performing Garage at 33 Wooster Street in New York City is the company’s permanent home. It owns and operates the Garage as a shareholder in the Grand Street Artists Co-op, established as part of the Fluxus art movement in the 1960s.
