Sister Sylvester is a Brooklyn-based collaborative theater company that uses performance to investigate the fictions—personal, political, and social—that are built up through language, and the dynamics of power that are created within those fictions. Since 2008, we have made work in both site-specific venues as well as in theaters, with a constant theme of investigating the audience-performer relationship at the heart of our practice. We've made work that is part performance and part rave, in an abandoned convent in Greenpoint; staged work in the cosmic-cavern installation space of artist Kenny Scharf; led audience members through freight elevators and into an old archive library for an immersive re-imagining of The Iceman Cometh. And we have developed work, such as our production Boxman, based on the novel of Kobo Abe, which are built of games and patterns rather than a set choreography, and are able to tour to a different venue every night and adapt to the new environment. We also work in theater spaces: most recently a month-long run of a new work at Dixon Place, and performances at Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn.
