Rude Grooms creates epicly intimate theatrical experiences rooted in the actor-audience relationship exemplified by Shakespeare’s acting company. Using interactive and responsive techniques of Early Modern English acting companies, we create interactive and accessible productions that provoke, inspire, & entertain, and we train Actor-Creators to tell their stories more clearly, bravely, & impulsively. We decentralize and increase access to the arts by bringing productions to multiple public spaces, non-traditional venues, and new media and offer free or affordable admission to all of our productions, which enriches our community through cultural engagement that is accessible financially, geographically, and artistically.
