More conscious of the theater’s limitations as an agent of political change, I found myself marveling at its ability to transcend that limitation by commenting on it.

About neva


"Best Play of the Year"

“NEVA is bold, theatrical, funny and fierce—a unique evening of theatre!” 

-ART CRITICS CIRCLE OF CHILE

 

NEVA is set in the winter of 1905. Olga Knipper—Anton Chekhov’s widow—and actors Masha and Aleko gather in a rehearsal room as revolution rings throughout St. Petersburg. Outside in the streets, striking workers struggle against the Tsarist regime, while inside, the actors play out scenes from their own lives and try to find the meaning of art in turbulent times.

OUR MISSION:

 

THEATRE EN BLOC CREATES AND SHARES ELEGANTLY RENDERED THEATRICAL EVENTS, BOTH NEW AND EXTANT, THAT COLLIDE WITH THE QUESTION:

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ALIVE

IN THE WORLD TODAY?

 

EVERYTHING WE CREATE

Theatre en Bloc creates theatrical events as a reaction to living in Austin, Texas, the United States, and the World. We’re interested in how an ever changing world affects people, how they react, and how they choose to make existence better or make it worse. Being human is an affliction and a gift. We hope our work plays some role in helping people make sense of the non-sense.


EXTRAORDINARY CRAFT

We're tireless in our pursuit of perfection. We push ourselves to be creative, innovative and entertaining. The result is top-notch work. Fail. Fail again. Fail better.


CULTURE OF COMPANY

More than collaboration - it's a state of being - an understanding between individual artists that our talents + ability to produce profound work are strengthened and nurtured when we work as a collective. Group think (and do).


COMING TOGETHER

Theatre is most effective when we're putting the right piece of work in front of the right people at the right time. Our work is never complete until you are a part of it.
