The Talking Band Inc


The Talking Band's original work has been a cornerstone of New York City's avant-garde theater community for 35 years. Its founders -- Paul Zimet, Ellen Maddow and Tina Shepard, all former members of Joseph Chaikin's seminal Open Theater -- have collaborated with designers, musicians and poets worldwide to create new plays marked by a diversity of artistic expression and a radical reimagining of the creative process. American Theatre magazine recently called the Talking Band, “one of the most exceptional and unsung experimental theatre companies in the country.” Never predictable and always evolving, the inspirations for our work range from melodrama to mathematics, and puppetry to postal workers. The Talking Band melds diverse themes and styles that stretch the boundaries of the conventional theater experience in plays that illuminate the extraordinary dimensions of ordinary life and find the unexpected connections that link each of us to the world at large.
