About the Organizers
Polybe + Seats produces new plays and collaboratively developed work. Inspired by Gertrude Stein’s writing for and about the theater, our work resists traditional narrative; we create theater that explores multiple points of view with an emphasis on social engagement. We often perform our projects in spaces not usually used for theater. These spaces allow our work to relate to Brooklyn and New York’s rich cultural heritage, and invite our audiences to look at culturally important spaces in new ways. Since 2001, Polybe + Seats has created and independently produced seven full-length plays and eight evenings of short pieces, participated in the New York International Fringe Festival and in 365 Days/365 Plays, and toured to the University of Michigan. We have partnered with a number of other Brooklyn cultural institutions to present work, including the Arab American Association of New York, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, the Old Stone House, and the Waterfront Museum & Showboat Barge. We are proud members of Fractured Atlas and of A.R.T./New York, and our work has been supported by organizations including the Brooklyn Arts Council, The Nancy Quinn Fund, and The Mental Insight Foundation, a Mabou Mines/Suite residency, and a New Play Commission from the National Foundation for Jewish Culture.
Polybe was one of Gertrude Stein’s dogs. Seats are where you sit. www.polybeandseats.org
