Pontine Theatre Production history
Pontine annually creates new work, adding to its extensive repertory of productions that explore the history, culture and literature of New England. Over decades of experimentation and bold innovation in the creation of more than 50 original works, Pontine has evolved a distinctive performance philosophy and style that remains uniquely its own. Pontine’s original works are composed entirely of dramatic elements drawn from New England history; they are enacted for audiences using a synthesis of period theatrical conventions, classical movement theatre, and experimental theatrical techniques. These signature dramatic creations offer Pontine audiences an aesthetic experience of the consciousness of 18th, 19th and 20th-century New England, its places and people, strengthening audiences’ connections to their communities, and deepening understanding and appreciation of local landscapes and shared historical legacies.
