A COLLECTION OF SHINY OBJECTS
A Collection of Shiny Objects is a theater company founded and led by Creative Producer Elizabeth R. English and Co-Artistic Director Jesse Geiger, with a rotating group of collaborators and associate artists. A Collection of Shiny Objects develops new work for performance through a process of deep collaboration. We begin at a very early stage on each piece with a committed group of writer, director, actors, designers and other artists to both develop text and shape the piece.
Our artistic interests revolve around issues of gender, sexuality, race, class, and the individual in society. We seek to tell our stories using theater, music, movement, multimedia, puppetry and the artifacts of popular culture. We also look to find innovative ways of producing through creative partnerships with other artists, theater companies and performance collectives.
We hope to get a reaction. We want to have the opportunity for dialogue with our audiences about our artistic content and its social meaning.
And also to have fun. Fun is good too.
A Collection of Shiny Objects has been supported by:
The Puffin Foundation, The Drama League, Women's Project and SPACE on Ryder Farm, among others.
We are proud to be a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas.
