Collaborative Theater Classes, Workshops and Performances


Building Company Theater was founded in 2012. Through our love of physical theater, mask, abstract and ensemble-based work, our theatre company serves as the leading theatre company of its kind in Syracuse, New York. 

We work to create new theater pieces that challenge political, social and moral ideals. When we aren't creating, we can be found in the Syracuse community working within the schools, business, hospitals and more.  Building Company members are dedicated to long - term artistic relationships with each other and the communities they live in.
