"In all the universe nothing remains permanent and unchanged
but the spirit"
About the Ensemble
The Visionbox Ensemble represents the core of the Visionbox Mission to support the on-going development of professional actors by providing them with advanced text-based acting technique, movement and voice & speech classes, ultimately leading to the development of new performance work. Jennifer McCray Rincon, Founding Artistic Director of Visionbox Studio Theatre, asserts that actors who train together develop a common language that allows them to create performance work of more depth and complexity than work produced in the 4-week model of most commercial theatre. This idea continues a tradition founded in the 1930s by Harold Clurman and The Group Theatre, whose work addressed the social and moral preoccupations of their time.
Membership is competitive and by audition and interview only. Members are able to take all intensives at a reduced cost. Ensemble members have preference in casting and are encouraged to develop their own project in our performance space. The members of the Ensemble also mentor and support the younger actors and artists in the Studio. The Ensemble is re-formed every January and each Ensemble creates their own collaborative agreements with the approval of the Artistic Director.
