Who’s Behind This Whole Thing Anyway?

“To stand at the edge of theatre, explore boundaries, test ourselves, and become the new Avant-Garde”.

The team at Off Kilter have been exploring experimental performance since a young age, and crave high-concept, unconventional and representative theatre. Finding American stage theatre like this has been difficult for them, and so they decided to take the bull by the horns and create this art themselves.

Fast forward to today, Off Kilter has fast become an award-winning theatre company, winning the Biggest Box Office Award at the Tampa International Fringe Festival 2018 and the Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Critics Choice Award 2018.
