About foolsFURY Theater Company

The mission of foolsFURY Theater Company is to revitalize the American theater by:

  • Creating ground-breaking visceral performances that inspire audiences and artists to reconsider and reconnect with the world around them,
  • Emphasizing qualities of the theater that can only be experienced live, and
  • Advancing artistic dialogue through training, research and presentation.

FoolsFURY is a San Francisco based performance ensemble. Named the city’s “Best Theater Company” by the SF Weekly (2008), and awarded the SF Bay Guardian’s GOLDIE award for outstanding local theater group, we place a premium on the creation process, spending longer periods developing our work than is the norm in mainstream American theater. We invite the public (you!) to view the work at various stages of development, engaging our audience as partners in exploration as well as consumers of a final commodity.

Our acclaimed productions include numerous original works and world premieres, as well as deconstructed classics. In recent years we have begun to focus on touring, in order to bring our work to a broader audience, give our creations a longer lifespan, and take a greater role in the national dialogue about the future of theater.

We are also the producers of the FURY Factory festival of ensemble and devised theater, a biennial gathering of performing artists from around the Bay Area and the world. Since its inception in 2005, FURY Factory has become one of San Francisco’s most exciting cultural events, a vibrant accessible home for audiences and artists to experience compelling new works by over 70 innovative risk-taking companies from around the country, and as far away as Afghanistan and the UK.
