Compagnia de’ Colombari is an international collective of performing artists, generating theater in surprising places. Colombari intentionally clashes cultures, traditions and art forms to bring fresh interpretation to the written word—old and new—and commits to using any means possible to flesh it out. Colombari is founded on the twin principles that the magic of theater can happen anywhere and be made accessible to everyone. Based in New York City, Compagnia de’ Colombari was born in Orvieto, Italy in 2004 where the company re-imagined the medieval mystery plays and performed them in the streets and piazzas of Orvieto. Since 2008, the company has created and performed More Or Less I Am, Everything That Rises Must Converge, The World Is Round Is Round Is Round, Monteverdi’s ORFEO, and most recently, texts&beheadings/ElizabethR.
