DAY 09

The Wooster Group (NYC, USA)

The Wooster Group is a New York City-based experimental theater company known for creating numerous original dramatic works. It gradually emerged during 1975-1980 from Richard Schechner’s The Performance Group (1967-1980) and took its name in 1980 (the 1975-1980 independent productions being retroactively attributed to the Group). The ensemble is since directed by Elizabeth LeComp. The Group’s home is the Performing Garage in SoHo.
