Artistic seasonst. Ann's Warehouse fills a vital niche on new york city's cultural landscape as an artistic home for the american avant-garde, international companies of distinction, and highly talented emerging artists ready to work on a grand scale. By virtue of its exciting programming profile, versatile performance space and tailored producing and marketing expertise, St. Ann's brings some of the world's most imaginative theater to new york city. Education, outreach, and empowerment foster vital connections, opening our programming and our building to our city's rich array of people and communities. In addition, St. Ann's has emerged as a major partner in activating found spaces through preservation, adaptive re-use, cultural and community uses.after having closed for 18 months during the pandemic, St. Ann's fy22 season offered a return to our mission as an artistic home for a global community of artists and to bring ground-breaking new theater once again to new york city audiences. By instituting rigorous health requirements and programming realizable work with smaller casts to keep costs down, we were able to keep artists and audiences safe. Across nine months we offered 70 performances to a total audience of 21,440 at 89% capacity as well as nine free concerts in the park to an audience estimated at 3,000. The season began in september 2021 with the world premiere of only an octave apart, an inspired collaboration between cabaret artist justin vivian bond and countertenor anthony roth costanzo, in a theatricalized concert of two dramatically contrasting voices and cultures, directed by zack winokur, with music direction by thomas bartlett (sep 21-oct 3, 2021, 12 performances).with restrictions lifted on foreign travel we invited irish playwright/director enda walsh to premiere his devastating, funny, and absurdist play, medicine featuring domhnall gleeson (nov 11-dec 12, 2021, 30 performances). In the spring french writer edouard louis' powerful father-son exploration, who killed my father premiered, directed by thomas ostermeier from the schaubuhne berlin (may 17-jun 5, 2022, 17 performances).puppets rounded out the season with a new a cappella choral work, book of mountains & seas by designer/director basil twist with music by composer huang ruo (mar 15-20, 2022, 6 performances). St. Ann's signature puppet festival showcased new puppetry in development by artists in the 2019 puppet lab, co-directed by robin frohardt and lake simons (feb 17-20, 2022, 6 performances). Outdoor concerts and public art on our building facade, instituted in the early days of the pandemic continued. A partnership with supremacy project invited artists to mount montages and installations addressing systemic oppression and violence against people of color in our building's archways and light boxes. Nine weeks of free weekly get back! Concerts featured a wide variety of musicians of diverse styles and genres (july and august). Public art offers a platform for bipoc artists and voices and diverse perspectives to the traditionally tourist side of brooklyn bridge park.
