The Fruit of Continued Collaboration

A large part of our mission is steeped in collaboration with designers, composers and artists. Over a 30 year period we have collaborated with many artists who have caused the work to ignite, expand and deepen the creative process. Composers such as Shamou, Miguel Noya, Grayson Hugh, and John Kusiak contributed greatly to the body of work. Visual Art has played a huge roll in the creation of set, environment and content, Debbie Cutler, Beth Galston, Werner Grundle, Jayne Murphy, Karen Klein, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison (Project III). Costume Designers Lucilla Padilla, Dianna Daley, Marian Bertone, and Penny Pinnett. Choreographers definitely take us to new places such as Christine Fricker (Inventories on Animated Bodies) Lighting Designers, Linda Taylor, Linda O’Brien, Paul Marr, Joe Levendusky, and Stephen Petrilli have changed the shape of the stage to make worlds steeped in shadow and light.  New works are  being created on the company to be presented and premiered for the 30th Anniversary by Korhan Basaran, (RAu) and Riley Watts (veil iii). Theses new ideas are developed through residencies that grow from master classes and sometimes lunch. Thank You to these Artists and Friends. We are grateful to have worked with all of our collaborators. Thank You!

Project III (But for Clouds)

Collaborative Artists Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

The final, full production residency, and culminating performance of Project III took place in October 2017. Prometheus and the ParkeHarrisons developed the piece through a series of residencies over three years at Skidmore College, The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and at Walnut Hill School for the Arts. Derived from the ideas of influence, Impact, and Imprint, the work used video, photography, elements of steam punk visuals, vaudevillian segments, and illusion to create a world where light and dark combined to stretch the imagination,
