Working in the Theatre: Double Edge Theatre

Double Edge Theatre is an artist-owned ensemble theatre, in which each member is responsible for the art making as well as the business and board leadership. Situated on a 100-acre Farm in the Ashfield Massachusetts Hilltowns, the facility includes two performance and training spaces, production facilities, offices, archives, music and outdoor performance areas as well as hay fields, grazing pastures, a stream, pond, and forestland. On the Farm, the company trains, performs, runs the business of the theatre, hosts programs and guests, and grows food. The Double Edge Ensemble creates original theatrical performances that are highly imaginative, imagistic, and visceral. These site-specific indoor/outdoor traveling spectacles awaken spectators to new possibilities of the human heart and mind. This season’s spectacle Once a Blue Moon – Cada Luna Azul is inspired by magic realism and many Latin American stories, including ensemble member Carlos Uriona’s memory of home.
