Founded in 2002, convergence-continuum is a theater company of actors, directors, playwrights, designers, artists, and technicians based in Cleveland at the Liminis Theater. Its six-show season runs March through December, and it also participates in the Northeast Ohio MFA Playwrights Festival in February together with Cleveland State University. At convergence-continuum, theater is not a mirror reflecting the familiar, but an opening into unknown territory with no fourth wall. Instead of merely watching, the audience is immersed into the world of the play to experience theater that extends conventional boundaries of language, structure, space, and performance, challenging conventional theatrical practice.
convergence-continuum’s mission is to produce contemporary, cutting-edge plays by living playwrights that examine our culture in innovative, environmental settings. It confronts, engages, and challenges audiences to share in the imaginative and investigative process of making their own cultural meanings and share in creative thinking about today’s cultural issues. Its intimate, mutable venue is a transcendent space where the world can be penetrated, explored, and experienced in new, unique ways.
