Colt Coeur is a Brooklyn-based theater company founded in 2010. We contemplate questions that inspire us and devise theater pieces which respond to and engage with the world in which we live. We address the ambivalence, terror and exhilaration of our age on the scale of person-to-person through theater that utilizes a simplicity of means to achieve richness of expression. Our original, story-driven, visceral theater straddles the line between mainstream and experimental, elevates design while valuing strong storytelling, and pulls you close and doesn't let go.
Artistic Director Adrienne Campbell-Holt leads a 14-member ensemble of actors, playwrights & designers to nurture the next generation of theater artists through the development and production of new plays and by providing arts education in underserved NYC public schools. Over 4 years, Colt Coeur has produced 4 world premieres; developed 11 plays; and provided arts education for students in grades 5-9 at Brooklyn public schools.
