Profile

Back in 1980, Susan Feldman—Arts at St. Ann's founding artistic director—wanted to create a performance space and cultural center, while the congregation of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity wanted to rescue its crumbling landmark home. So began one of the city's more unlikely creative partnerships. In return for the use of the sanctuary, ASA mounted productions that contributed funds to save the stained glass windows and to help with other renovations. The collaboration was a financial success, but as the group's focus turned from classical music toward more avant-garde fare (e.g., Brecht/Weill's "The Seven Deadly Sins" and Marianne Faithfull's "Blazing Away"), the relationship soured. The church kicked the group out in 2000. Now housed in a new warehouse space that’s less charming but more adaptable, ASA continues to present cutting-edge multidisciplinary programs. Deborah Harry, Al Pacino, and Basil Twist have all made appearances for audiences ranging from 150 to 1200 depending on the stage configuration.

Extra

A longtime commitment to the art of puppetry continues with the yearly "Labapalooza!" festival.
