Founded in 1992 by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki, SITI Company began as an agreement to redefine and revitalize contemporary theater in the United States through an emphasis on international cultural exchange and collaboration. Originally envisioned as a summer institute in Saratoga Springs, New York, SITI expanded to encompass a year-round company based in New York City with a summer season in Saratoga. The Company is known nationally and internationally as a top-level artistic collective that generates groundbreaking theater while training artists from around the world.
In addition to Artistic Director Anne Bogart, SITI Company is comprised of ten actors, five designers, a playwright, stage manager, development director and managing director. The company represents a change in thinking about the relationships between artists and institutions. SITI Company has formed relationships with theaters and venues around the world who present the Company’s work. Examples include our ongoing relationships with Actors Theatre of Louisville; American Repertory Theatre; the Brooklyn Academy of Music; Classic Stage Company; the Krannert Center; Magic Theatre; On the Boards; Performing Arts Chicago; UCLA Performing Arts; Walker Art Center; and the Wexner Center for the Arts. SITI’s affiliations with universities include New York University; The Juilliard School; Columbia
University; Princeton University; The Ohio State University; Utah State University and DePaul University. Every June the Company continues to gather for our annual Summer Intensive at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs. Internationally, SITI has performed and led training in Japan, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Wales, the Georgian Republic, Ireland, Turkey, Italy, Australia, Canada, Columbia, Scotland, England, Israel, Denmark and Holland.
SITI recently premiered Intimations for Saxophone at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C., systems/layers (a collaboration with music group Rachel’s) at Utah State University and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at San Jose Repertory Theatre. Other SITI productions include: Orestes; The Medium; Small Lives/Big Dreams; Going, Going, Gone; Miss Julie; Culture of Desire; Bob; Private Lives; Alice’s Adventures; Cabin Pressure; War of the Worlds; Room; bobrauschenbergamerica; Hayfever, La Dispute, Macbeth and Score. Future productions include: Hotel Cassiopeia, A Streetcar Named Desire and Reunion. SITI Company and its members have won numerous awards including Obies, Drama Desks, EDDY’s, and many more.
One of the most important aspects of SITI’s work is the teaching of training techniques to actors and theater artists throughout the United States and the world. Each year SITI finds itself in studios, working with old friends and new. The Viewpoints and the Suzuki Method of Actor Training are two distinct methods of actor training used in building and staging SITI productions. SITI Company members, all of whom have been trained by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki, are specially qualified to introduce and train other theater artists in these approaches. For Information regarding SITI Company’s New York City Training Studio in both the Suzuki Method of Actor Training and the Viewpoints, please call the SITI Office at 212.868.0860.
