7 Towers Theatre Company
7 Towers began in 2010 as a collaboration between an actor and a dramaturg, both interested in the basic relationship between story, performer, and audience. Placing a particular emphasis on honest communication, we value fundamental methods of storytelling over expensive spectacle. We believe in empowering actors to actively contribute to the creative process, both in the rehearsal room and in production.
7 Towers is dedicated to making theatre that challenges the status quo, both in content and in production style. We seek to produce both new and classic plays that ask exhaustive and probing questions about the society we live in and the function of art within it. We are not interested in asking questions we already know the answers to. We believe that exploring contemporary experience through direct, honest, and often irreverent storytelling can open live theatre to new and diverse audiences. Whenever possible, we produce in non-traditional venues and areas that are not already saturated with live performance, thus creating opportunities for interaction with new communities.
We are motivated by what Martha Graham describes as a “queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive.” Our fundamental vision is of a theatrical process that searches for precise and deep truth, deeper than what the average person, or even the average artist, will accept as sufficient.
