Shaking The Tree Theatre and Studio


Shaking The Tree Theatre seeks to meld the boundaries of theater and visual art by presenting audiences with thrilling and immersive theatrical experiences. Founded in 2003, the theater company uses innovative ways to inhabit the space, creating heightened surroundings that allow audiences to experience a deeper, more active connection to the works. Shaking The Tree Studio is a laboratory for tomorrow’s theater makers. By using the same principles it holds dear for creating plays, it aims to provide its students with rich and varied literature, allows them to explore it through immersion, and as a result, aids their deeper connection to thought, feeling, and action.
