2013 Workshop - June 2 - 29, 2013SITI Company was built on the bedrock of ensemble with the belief that through the practice of collaboration, a group of artists working together over time can have a significant impact upon contemporary theater and the world at large. Through performances, educational programs and collaborations with other artists and thinkers, SITI Company challenges the status quo, trains to achieve artistic excellence in every aspect of their work, and offers new ways of defining artists as global citizens. SITI Company is committed to providing a gymnasium for the soul where the interaction of art, artists, audiences and ideas inspire the possibility for change, optimism and hope.
SITI Company, "Cafe Variations"
Founded in 1992 by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki, SITI began as an agreement to redefine
and revitalize contemporary theater in the U.S. through an emphasis on international
cultural exchange and collaboration. Originally envisioned as a summer institute in
Saratoga Springs, New York, SITI expanded to become a year-round company based in
New York City with a summer season in Saratoga. In New York City, the Company regularly
performs at “New York Live Arts" (formerly Dance Theater Workshop) and conducts training
programs at their home studio in midtown. The Company is known nationally and internationally
as a top-level artistic collective that generates groundbreaking theater while training
artists from around the world. SITI and its members have received numerous honors,
including the Fox Foundation Fellowship for Distinguished Actor, Obie, Drama Desk
and Eddy awards.
SITI recently premiered Cafe Variations at Arts Emerson in Boston, and further developed the touring version at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland and at the Krannert Center in Champaign Urbana, Illinois. Other recent projects include Trojan Women (the Getty Villa in Los Angeles), American Document (with the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Joyce Theater, New York City), Antigone (DTW), Under Construction (Humana Festival of New American Plays), and Virginia Woolf's only play, Freshwater (the Women's Project, New York City).
