We are pleased to announce that Network of Ensemble Theatres has awarded Pig Iron Theatre Company with a 2015-16 NET/TEN Exchange Grant to support a collaboration with music composer and Filmmaker Troy Herion.
Pig Iron and Herion will come together for 10 daysto exchange improvisation and composition techniques related to the devising of original music-theater. This exchange will lay the groundwork for a new work of symphonic theater by Herion and Pig Iron.
We also extend our congratulations to our other Philadelphia theatre makers, Applied Mechanics, who were also awarded a NET/TEN grant.
