“Wake up in 2009 in the hands of a theater company who knows what it’s doing” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Architecting is an exhilarating saga that weaves through past and future to create a requiem for modern America. A collision of horses, sex and hoop skirts, burning plantations and nasty hurricanes, this musical, time-bending, multi-media epic rockets between reconstructions, real and imagined, of citizens and nations.

The TEAM is the Theatre of the Emerging American Moment, a theatre company dedicated to dissecting and celebrating the experience of living in America today. 3-time Edinburgh Fringe First Winners (2005 – 2008), 2008 Total Theatre Award, 2007 Best Production Dublin Fringe, and TimeOut New York’s Top Ten 2007. The TEAM’s work has been seen stateside, all over New York, including Performance Space 122; nationally, including the Walker Art Center and Vanderbilt University; internationally, including London’s Battersea Arts Centre, the Bristol Old Vic, Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, and the Galway Arts Festival.

Architecting was created with support from the National Theater of Scotland Workshop, the Greenwall Foundation, the Panta Rhea Foundation, the Battersea Arts Centre in London, and the Orchard Project.

Architecting was developed at the BAC (May 2007), the 2007 CUNY Prelude Festival (Sept 2007), 3LD Art & Technology Center, New York (May 2008), the Orchard Project (June 2008). Architecting (Part One) made its world premiere at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
