The Ensemble

Anonymous Ensemble is a group of artists that explore innovative technologies and performance practices in order to create new theater and live film.

The Work

Our performances are driven by narratives. Sometimes the narratives are created by us, sometimes they are provided by audience members and frequently they are created by us in collaboration with our audiences.

Story

Anonymous Ensemble was founded in 2001 and has created new work every year since. We have presented work throughout New York City and the United States, as well as Greece, England, Scotland, Norway, Germany, and Australia. We value creating community wherever we are and we ask how the audience can be co-creators of each performance event.

Anonymous Ensemble seeks artists for our 2019-2020 Avant Gardens Residency Program at Montgomery Gardens. Montgomery Gardens is a shared rehearsal and office space in Crown Heights, Brooklyn that is run by the theater company, Anonymous Ensemble. Anonymous Ensemble seeks applications from early career artists who need space to develop new performance work. We offer up to 40 hours of free rehearsal space over the course of one month. The exact schedule of rehearsal times will be worked out with Anonymous Ensemble according to the needs of the awarded project and will be subject to the space’s availability. We are particularly interested in collaborative projects in the very early stages of development. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds to submit applications and will look more closely at the specific project proposal than artists’ previous works when reviewing applications. We especially encourage artists living in the Crown Heights area to apply. To apply please send an email to avantgardens@anonymousensemble.org, including a one sentence project description and three sentences describing the objectives for the residency. Additionally, each applicant should include up to five links to either pre-existing or specifically tailored online materials. These links can be a company website, a project web page, a work sample, bios, media of the project materials, project inspirations, an image, a wikipedia entry, etc. The final round of the application process will be an informal interview at Montgomery Gardens. Due by 11:59pm October 25th.
