B¡G ART GROUP at EVERYBOOTY!
Big Art Group is a New York based experimental performance ensemble founded by Caden Manson and Jemma Nelson in 1999. Big Art Group uses laguage and media to push formal boundaries of theatre, film and visual arts; it creates culturally transgressive works and innovative performances using original text, technology and experimental methods of communication. The company’s works exists in the contemporary stream of postdramatic performance, wherein traditional narratives and established performeraudience relationships have been opened up to create possibilities of innovative discovery. The work blends high and low technology, marginal and mainstream culture, and blunt investigation to confront complex issues about contemporary experience.
In its history, the company grew from a small New York underground performance group to an internationally prominent and critically recognized ensemble with essays in performance literature (PAJ, Theater Journal, Mouvement, Theatre Heute), grants from The Jerome Foundation,The Greenwall Foundation, DNA (Andrew W. Mellon foundation and Arts International), Florence Gould Foundation, MAP Fund, étant donnés, and multiple invitations from leading festivals and presenters of experimental performance (Hebbel am Ufer Berlin, Festival d’Automne à Paris, La Vie de Festival Rome, Desingel Antwerp, Wexner Center for the Arts, REDCAT, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Kitchen).
