Pig Iron Theatre Company is a multidisciplinary ensemble based in Philadelphia. Since its foundation in 1995, the company has created and presented more than 25 original works. Using improvisation and company discussion, and allowing a development period of more than a year for each project, Pig Iron has created shows ranging from a rock-n-roll cabaret piece emceed by a character representing James Joyce’s institutionalized daughter (The Lucia Joyce Cabaret) to an interactive “simulated economic environment” with a cast of 30 (Pay Up). The company has toured both locally and internationally, and in 2011 it established its own school for Advanced Performance Training (APT), a two-year post-graduate program for performers and directors rooted in Pig Iron’s methods of physical, ensemble-based theatre.
