Skin Horse Theater is a performance collective dedicated to experimentation. Our work is not bound by genre, or by any particular dogma or mode of performance. Our purpose is simply to do what we have not done before, to try something new and vastly different with each project. We are invested in theater as a holistic endeavor, in which performer, space, design, text and sensory experience are all equal to and in dialogue with one another. We believe in stealing inspiration from anywhere and performing in any space that inspires us. We believe that challenging ourselves through inquiry and experimentation is the best way to create compelling work that will keep hold of you long after the performance.

Skin Horse Theater seeks through a process of inquiry, experimentation and collaboration  to bring innovative multidisciplinary performance work to the New Orleans theater scene. Because we explore something completely different with each new project, the content and style of our work is vastly diverse; ranging from original dramatic work and literary adaptation, to site-specific immersive dance, to gritty rock opera.
