ONE OLD CROW PRODUCTIONS is a new company dedicated to producing works across multiple mediums that highlight and celebrate an experimental nature and an explorative use of space and place. We are not interested so much in Naturalism as REALISM; in exploring the reality and truth in situations that exist outside of daily life yet illuminate our existence. In theater, we tend toward immersive environments with nontraditional setups. The classical line between performer and spectator is blurred. We're not just crafting shows - we're crafting experiences. For more, go to www.oneoldcrowproductions.com.
