Colonels Row

An immersive theatrical experience based on the memories and histories of those who have called Governors Island home. Critical to this development are YOUR stories of Governors Island. Exquisite Corpse Company is thrilled to be opening the doors of Colonels Row 404A for visitors to come and share their memories of friends, family, and experiences of the island and its place as a “home” today. Additional readings of the work as it develops along with art classes, installation models, etc. will coincide with this years programming. Stay tuned for more details!

About Exquisite Corpse Company (ECC):

Exquisite Corpse Company is a performance-based integrated arts company formed in 2012 with a vision to create a supportive community for emerging artists. ECC fosters collaborative dialogue between artistic mediums and nurtures marginalized voices. ECC utilizes strategies of collective assembly inspired by the Surrealists proposition of the “exquisite corpse”.

For the past three years ECC has been an Artist in Residence on Governors Island. Through this program ECC has been able to afford over 100 artists opportunities to create and offered immersive cross-disciplinary theatrical experiences to audiences reaching over 1,000 members. Previous work presented on the island include: Secession 2015, Corpse Revival Performance Series, UnReel short film series, The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte and last year’s A Ribbon About A Bomb.
