Defying solidification, theater is, by definition, not Matter (though it may matter, we hope). AntiMatter Collective is a Brooklyn-based theater company dedicated to the creation of unflinching new work that confronts the chasm between the transient and the permanent, the hysterical and the horrific, the squalid and the transcendent.
We make badass theater that you will enjoy.
“Motherboard has the distinction of being the most violent stage production I’ve ever seen… Watch as android skin is peeled back to reveal circuitry; watch out for sudden bloodsplatters. The ring of gunshots and the smell of smoke from blanks fills the air.” – io9
“This frightening and fascinating experience [Demonology] will make you feel like you’ve been missing something even if you’re a regular devotee of downtown independent theater.” – NYTheatre.com
“Death Valley… comes off tighter than Dick’s hatband.” - Back Stage
