Flux Theatre Ensemble announces new Creative Partners

Corey Allen, Sienna Gonzalez, and Jason Tseng join award-winning ensemble

Flux Theatre Ensemble is pleased to announce that Corey Allen, Sienna Gonzalez, and Jason Tseng have joined the ensemble as Creative Partners. In Flux’s equitable organizational structure, all Creative Partners serve as artistic and executive directors through a non-hierarchical, consensus-based leadership model. This practice of collective leadership presents an alternative way to create and produce theatre outside of traditional hierarchical models. Flux’s innovative approach to making theatre has been honored with a Caffé Cino Fellowship Award, a Fractured Atlas’ Arts Entrepreneurship Award, and been featured in HowlRound. 

In addition to its new members, Flux’s Creative Partnership includes Heather Cohn, Emily Hartford, Rachael Hip-Flores, Kia Rogers, Will Lowry, Lori Elizabeth Parquet, Corinna Schulenburg, Alisha Spielmann, and Isaiah Tanenbaum. Collectively, Flux and its Creative Partners have been nominated for over 20 New York Innovative Theatre Awards, winning six. 

“I owe so much of who I am as a playwright and theatre artist to Flux Theatre Ensemble, said Jason Tseng. “Over the past ten years, I’ve grown from an assistant costume designer on Flux’s production of The Lesser Seductions of History to being a playwright when Flux produced my play, Rizing. I have long admired this ensemble’s dedication to craft, community, and creativity. I am so honored to be invited to be an ensemble member of a theater company I have held in such high esteem for so long.”

“I moved to New York nearly two decades ago with chump change in my pocket and a dream of joining the city’s theatre scene,” said Corey Allen. I didn’t know then that most of my early years would be spent auditioning to work out of town, so I am thankful I found my way to Flux. From my first audition, it was clear its creative partners were driven by its core mission and committed to fostering an environment for deep collaboration. After nearly a decade of collaborations, I’ve come to know what truly sets the company apart is its dedication to art that challenges yet empowers its audiences and creatives. I am honored to call Flux a creative home and look forward to helping shape its new chapter of art making.”

“I’m so honored to be trusted by the Flux family in joining as a creative partner,” Sienna Gonzalez. “Although theatrical lighting design has been a major passion of mine, I’ve realized that the creative in me needs a little room to roam, and Flux not only allows that, but encourages it. Flux explores storytelling in such a refreshing way. I’m so happy to be part of the team, and I look forward to the many more things I can learn from this wonderful group of people. “
