new theater house (nth) is an ensemble of theater artists dedicated to redefining the methods of collaboration in the American theater. Our ensemble is comprised of actors, designers, writers and directors who cross-pollinate disciplines in order to impart individual artistic ownership over all aspects of the production from start to finish. Our work is based in the Essence Piece Process -- individually created solo performances that explode the physical, visual, and aural landscapes of a play. These pieces become the shared artistic vocabulary for our rehearsal processes and for our productions. We believe theater to be a collective vision, first within our company and then with our audiences. We strive to build work that is visceral, expressive, and unrestrained to share in conversation with a growing new national audience.
