Theater Reconstruction Ensemble is an evolving collective of theater artists striving to reconstruct both classical and canonical forms of theatricality through the playful development of works over time. Committed to a collaborative approach to theater making, TRE functions as a project-based ensemble of artists working under the artistic leadership of director John Kurzynowski, collectively examining each element of a theatrical text or tradition and creating new works that reflect the ensemble’s personal connection to the materiel being explored.

Founded in 2010, TRE continues to expand upon a unique process of theatrical exploration that engages its members in highly instinctual and intuitive modes of development. This process has led to the creation of each of the company’s mainstage works, and continues to inspire other multidisciplinary artists through training and developmental programs.
