Third Rail Projects
Hailed as one of the foremost companies creating site-specific, immersive and experiential dance-theater in the United States, Third Rail Projects, led by Artistic Directors Zach Morris, Tom Pearson, and Jennine Willett, is dedicated to re-envisioning ways in which audiences can engage with contemporary performance. They have made work in New York, internationally, and abroad for over 15 years, and their long-running, award-winning work, Then She Fell, was named as one of the “Top Ten Shows of the 2012” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and acclaimed as one of the best theater experiences of 2013 by Vogue Magazine. The show has also garnered accolades from Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and countless others. Third Rail Projects has been the recipient of several prestigious awards, including three New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Awards for Then She Fell (2013) and Vanishing Point (2008). Fundamental to Third Rail Projects’ work is the notion of re-imagining contexts for presenting contemporary work, as exemplified by their history of creating projects sought after by both avid dance and theater goers as well as underserved populations and those seeking unique experiences.
