Celebrating 25 years of theater that moves you
Founded in Pittsburgh in 1990, Karla Boos initiated a company that incorporated the influences of world culture and the dynamic trends sweeping through the international theatre scene.
25 years and over 70 productions later, Quantum Theatre has taken root, providing a nurturing home for Boos’ evolution as an artist and for the hundreds of collaborators that have created Quantum’s work. These artists draw upon the resources of image, world languages, mixed media, and the power of non-traditional performance sites.
Unique for the region, Quantum’s productions are staged environmentally in places that aren’t theatres. They have become a reflection of Pittsburgh itself, expressing the varying character of the city in places as different from each other as the grandest museum and the least likely abandoned industrial site.
