Urban Research Theater develops original theatrical works out of a continuous, long-term practice of performance research. Our commitment to uniting text and narrative with irreducible liveness in performance follows a tradition established by the laboratory theatres of Konstantin Stanislavski and Jerzy Grotowski. We aim to be a theatre laboratory for the twenty-first century
Since its founding in 2004, Urban Research Theater has organized and led over forty public events the United States and Europe. We welcome inquiries and invitations from fellow artists, scholars, practitioners and producers working in live performance.
While I suppose that all forms of performance have the potential to embody the active spiritual search of the doer, I have encountered few individuals or companies whose work manifests this quality so palpably as that of Urban Research Theater.
