Gale Theatre Company, Austin TX
Hi there! We’re Gale Theatre Company. We make new devised theatre here in Austin, Texas and we need your help to bring our first season to life.

What is devised theatre? Well, it means that we start in the room with actors, physical training, ideas, and NO SCRIPT. We build a universe from scratch and make shows in the moment. It is a big process that involves immense collaboration and trust. We love what we do.

Katherine Wilkinson, our Artistic Director, has been teaching, performing, and directing all around the world (USA, Australia, India, Greece) for the last 6 years. Celina Chapin has been choreographing new work internationally as well and most recently trained at the American Dance Festival and with Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance. Their diverse backgrounds and shared love for physical theatre inspired the creation of Gale Theatre Company.

Gale Theatre Co is dedicated to making work that is aesthetically arresting, emotionally compelling, physically daring, and dedicated to the unending power of live performance. Why do we need your help? Gale Theatre Co has begun building its first season and we need support to make it happen. We are currently in rehearsal for 2 brand new shows.

The first, Florence, is an ensemble-devised work about Florence Lawrence, the first movie star. Florence is a co-production between Gale,Bottle Alley Theatre, and the City of Austin. Show dates: December 6-9 & 12-15, 8pm, Sparky Pocket Park, Austin. TICKETS ON SALE NOV
Our second show, WK, is a play about first loves. It is also ensemble devised and will premiere at the New Orleans Fringe in November. Out of 150 applications, WK was one of 24 chosen by the Fringe. WK will return to Austin in January and have a three-week run at the Vortex.
