architectural 
sets to create a world onstage
that reflects contemporary culture.

Since 1994, with a growing circle of artists, it has collaborated on seven 
large-scale 
theater projects, including Master Builder (1994), The White Album (1995), 
Imperial 
Motel  (Faust) (1996), Jump Cut (Faust) (1997), Jet Lag (1998-2000) with Diller 
+ 
Scofidio, Xtravaganza (2000-01) and Alladeen (2002) with motiroti. Alladeen is 
currently 
touring worldwide in venues including the Barbican Centre, London, 

Singapore International Theater Festival, RomaEuropa, and will appear at BAM's 
Next 
Wave Festival in December 2003. The companyís work has also been presented at 
Trafo 
Theater, Budapest, Kaaitheater, Brussels, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and 
The 
Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
