Philadelphia’s vibrant young theatre company Applied Mechanics is comprised of founders Rebecca Wright and Maria Shaplin and ensemble members Kristen Bailey, Thomas Choinacky, Jessica Hurley, John Jarboe, and Mary Tuomanen. Applied Mechanics is interested in exploring the relationships between bodies and space, and in building stories with actors that challenge conventional ideas of theatrical space, narrative, and performer-audience relationship.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
