REBATEnsemble produces contemporary, classical and original plays with an experimental twist for the greater Seattle area. We pursue a dialogue with our audiences by generating theatre inspired by immediate and relevant socio-political issues. Our work blends theatre with other artistic mediums in unconventional and non-traditional spaces.
Our company believes in the strength of an ensemble and our artistic philosophy is rooted in the idea that theatricality and spectacle begins with the actor. Our plays are ensemble driven and we look to nurture our relationship with the artists that work with us.
Recession Era Broke-Ass Theatre Ensemble started in 2011 as a UW student-led alternative to costly theatre in expensive venues. Bringing our unconventional approach to everything we do, we’ve done shows in theatres, cafes, parks and teahouses. Our cast and crew have always played an integral part in crafting our scripts and the actors’ contributions have led to some of our best works. Since then, we’ve grown and refined our craft, our members having gone on to other positions in the theatre industry (a few have even become film and TV actors in Hollywood) but REBATEnsemble remains a passion project, largely due to our unique approach to theatre. As we look to the future, we’ll continue blending forms, shattering the fourth wall and playing with fire.
