We are an association of actors dedicated to a new and emerging form of our art which speaks to the contemporary sensibilities of our public, of our audience. We believe that acting is the art par excellence of our times and that the theatre as a living art can open the doors of perception so vital to the challenges of our historic moment.
Keeping in mind this commitment to meaningful and creative public assembly, we are engaged in a process of study and research regarding the techniques of our art, the subject matter of our plays, and forms of mise-en-scène which can distinguish the meaning of the theatre as a most vital contemporary artform.
Beyond the rehearsal process of our current productions, we maintain a growing extended company which engages in training and research into acting technique including Meyerhold’s Biomechanics, “Jazz Acting,” and various forms of physical training. These training sessions also culminate in a bi-monthly public performance of The Alchemical Actors Salon. Interested actors may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for audition and interview.
