Bio
LILAC CO. IS AN ENSEMBLE DRIVEN EXPERIMENTAL THEATER COMPANY BASED IN BROOKLYN, NY AND FOUNDED BY WRITER/ACTOR/DIRECTOR SEAN EDWARD LEWIS. COMMITTED TO A PRACTICE ROOTED IN THE PERSONALITIES OF ITS PERFORMERS, AND IN THE WRITING OF LEWIS, LILAC SEEKS A LO-FI SIMPLICITY OF EXTREME RIGOR THAT DEMANDS THE MAXIMUM PARTICIPATION OF ALL PRESENT.

LILAC CO. offers an evental structure, a dramatic structure which moves from event to event rather than scene-by-scene. These events are interruptive, continuously messing with an audience’s attention. Fundamental to this event structure is language. Written and directed by Sean Lewis, the language recalls modernist literary experiments such as those of Gertrude Stein, Samuel Beckett, Lewis Carol, and Antonin Artaud. By using language that is connotative rather than denotative (that suggests something rather than “saying” something) an audience member can dwell rather than be directed what to think about – a narrative progression or a character’s “inner” psychology. Such language affects feelings and ideas actively,if not immediately,in an audience.[Thom Donovan,Wild Horses of Fire,2009]
