SPONSORED BY NOBODY is an international theatre company based in Brooklyn, committed to developing a "blue-collar avant-garde." Founded in 2005, SBN has established a reputation in New York and Europe for presenting abrasive, engaging theatre while refusing to relinquish the idea of art as a catalyst for social change. While rooted in theatre, SBN incorporates multiple disciplines in our work -- borrowing from dance, film, music and installation art -- while employing both found-texts and original writing. SBN remains committed to a collaborative development process and operates with a sense of urgency on each project. The goal of maintaining a sense of relevance and immediacy to our contemporary reality remains the foundation of our company’s approach. SPONSORED BY NOBODY keeps falling for phrases like unrequited love + systems of resistance + sense of community + DIY ethics + international socialism.
