The 5th Wall Theatre Company

We are a small non-profit company of artists creating original immersive, interactive and physical theatre for the north shore of Massachusetts.

The 5th Wall thrives on collaboration and experimentation. With every project, the life of the play inspires a new creative process. We pursue innovative techniques that challenge us; pushing our limits to constantly advance our aspirations as a company to create high-caliber contemplative and compelling immersive theatre.

Merging installation, interactive and physical theatre, attendees at our shows are more than an audience: they are a character in the story. Our shows exist in the delicate suspension between reality and the fantastical: gently coaxing out the inner child, while holding up a fragile mirror to life. The spirit of our work is to create a safe space that invites both actor and audience to invent stories and play. Through this approach, every singular performance is a unique experience known only to those who were present.

By working with non-traditional methods and inviting child-like play into the lives of our audiences of all ages, we hope to transform the way you experience theatre.

 

I Have Worked With

  • December 2016

    We are currently working on Walk With Me, a production that will be featured during ArtSpeak's annual event to raise funds and awareness for human trafficking in Boston and the North Shore. All proceeds of the event and production will directly benefit Amirah- a safe house on the north shore of Boston that focuses on whole-person care for women escaping sexual exploitation in the greater Boston area.

    Other collaborators on this project are: Y of the North Shore and numerous other individual artists.

  • October 2015

    In 2015 we collaborated with Willowdale Estate (a historic mansion in Topsfield, MA) to create a spooky installation of our Halloween show BodyBodyBODy.

  • July 2015

    In 2015 we created and performed Between out-of-doors in the beautiful Sedgwick Gardens in Bevery, MA: one of the many historical locations preserved by the Trustees of Reservations in Massachusetts.
