10 Immersive Theater Companies To Discover – 9. Pearl Damour (NYC/New Orleans)

9. Pearl Damour (NYC/New Orleans) pearldamour.com

“We are an Obie-Award winning collaborative team who create performance both inside and outside traditional theater spaces.   We are known for large-scale performances that mix theater and installation — such as How to Build a Forest, an 8-hour performance in which we assemble and disassemble a simulated forest on an empty stage over 8 hours – and intimate performances designed for small audiences — such as Bird Eye Blue Print, created for a set of small vacant offices in the World Financial Center in Manhattan.  Over our 15-year history of making work together, we have devised a body of work that is attentive to the performer / audience relationship, and searches for new approaches to narrative through the accumulation of text, image, physicality and architectural elements.  We want our audiences to feel like they are inside of an experience, rather than watching something happen “over there.” When we make a show we create room for the audience to feel like they have slipped into the private headspace of a performer they are watching:  an intimate, associative, surprising place.” – Pearl Damour website
