In 2012, OYL began exploring a new theatrical vision: collective storytelling.
We are an ensemble company - artists who work together consistently over long periods - and this founding principle is mirrored in our productions, as we approach work from the perspective of a collective consciousness.
We seek to draw audiences into the experience as a participant, an accomplice, a part of the group, as culpable.
Theatrically, a Greek chorus is defined, in part, as a collective voice contextualized by each individual participant's different experience of a shared event. We draw on this ancient principle as we modernize the chorus into a contemporary form.
Welcome to the OYL chorus.
