Flux Theatre Ensemble produces transformative theatre that explores and awakens the capacity for change. As an ensemble-artist driven company, we believe that long-term collaboration and rigorous creative development can unite artists and audiences to build a creative home in New York.
Since 2006, Flux has produced 22 productions and countless readings and developmental projects. The ensemble is made up of eleven Creative Partners composed of actors, directors, playwrights, and designers. Flux is the proud recipient of the 2011 Caffe Cino Fellowship Award, presented annually to an Off-Off-Broadway theatre company that consistently produces outstanding work. The company’s productions of Hearts Like Fists and Ajax in Iraq were chosen as “New York Times Critics’ Picks” and in 2015 Backstage named Flux one of “eight young and mighty New York theatre companies.” Over the years, Flux has received New York Innovative Theatre Award nominations for their productions of Once Upon a Bride There Was a Forest, Jane the Plain, Sans Merci, Hearts Like Fists, Ajax in Iraq, The Angel Eaters Trilogy, The Lesser Seductions of History and Dog Act.
Flux Theatre Ensemble is a member of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/NY, the Network of Ensemble Theaters and the League of Independent Theatres.
These values live in all aspects of our work and in every point of contact with our community.
Flux’s aesthetic is ensemble-artist driven and evolves according to the needs of our community.
In addition to our main productions, Flux is actively dedicated to play development through Food:Soul, ForePlay, Have Another, Flux Sundays and our annual retreat.
Since 2006, Flux has produced 22 productions in New York City. Read more about the productions, see photos and read reviews here.
What if you’re hungry for both food and theatre? That’s where Food:Soul, Flux’s potluck play reading series, comes in. We take a play we’re passionate about developing, rehearse it, and then share it with you in an extreme staged reading over home-cooked food.

Sometimes, you need a warm up for the full production. With Flux’s exploratory play reading series, ForePlay, our community of artists riff on the themes of our upcoming shows through newly commissioned short plays.
More information on ForePlays will be added soon!
Want to see the plays we’re working on at Flux Sundays? Then come Have Another with Flux! This series takes our favorite Sunday scenes and stages them at Jimmy’s #43, a great bar in the East Village.
More info on Have Another will be added soon!
It all begins with our weekly play development workshop, Flux Sundays. Every Sunday when not in production, Flux’s growing community of actors, directors, and playwrights meets to lightly stage new scenes from plays in development. Over the course of a year, Flux Sundays develops over thirty plays, and deepens our relationship with over 75 artists.
