ABOUT

Ashes Company was founded in New York by director Jonathan Vandenberg and dramaturg Erik Grathwohl. The company's evolving theatrical language incorporates many different fields, including physicality, sculpture, and acoustics. Projects are always inspired by catalytic elements within fecund source material. In all praxis, the group seeks the dramatic tension that can only emerge from a certain objectivity, rendering a presence that is at once irresolvable and majestic. The company's work has been presented in New York by Classic Stage Company, Mabou Mines, and the Center for Performance Research, as well as regionally by the Middlebury College Museum of Art (Middlebury, VT) and upcoming at The Cutting Ball Theater (San Francisco, CA).
