Taffety Punk exists to sustain a collection of performing artists who make theatre exciting, meaningful and affordable. We think of ourselves as a band, a theatre band if you will, in which acting, dance, and music are intricately linked. By focusing on the needs of the artists our work is more vivid, deep and meaningful to audiences. Since 2004, these principles have guided us. Our ensemble of artists grow together, complimenting each other, challenging each other, and establishing a relationship with our community.
Taffety Punk’s goals are to ignite a public passion for theatre, to question the status quo, and to make theatre more accessible and attractive. We want our audiences to re-evaluate what they expect from theatre, and to share in the discoveries we make onstage.
