Their long-running immersive theater hit Then She Fell was listed as one of the top Ten shows of 2012 by Ben Brantley in The New York Times, hailed as “extreme theater: fresh, fun, totally absorbing” by TIME Magazine and as “One of the most hauntingly lovely pieces of theater that I’ve ever experienced” by VOGUE.
Then She Fell continues to run, 12 shows a week, in Williambsurg, Brooklyn and features FSU alumni Roxanne Kidd (BFA 2012) and Joshua Reaver (BFA 2011). Then She Fell has been nominated for a 2013 New York Dance & Performance (Bessie) Award for Outstanding Production. This past year they have created their multi-disciplinary works, taught, and lectured in New York City and throughout New York State and internationally in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) and Almaty (Kazakhstan), through CEC Artslink and the Trust for Mutual Understanding. They launched their first ever touring work, Roadside Attraction, a mobile site-specific work for 6 dancers (including alumna Tori Sparks, BFA 1999) and a vintage pop-up camper.
