THE UME GROUP
The Ume Group is a New York-based physical theatre ensemble, led by Producing Artistic Director, Jordan Rosin. Now dedicated to sharing traditions and developing new work, it was originally founded in February 2011 by Jordan Rosin, Christian Leadley, & Chloe Fox as a vehicle to produce their flag-ship dance-theatre work, Butoh Electra. Currently in residence at Grace & St. Paul's Church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, The Ume Group offers a weekly yoga class; periodic workshops in a variety of physical theatre traditions as well as space and logistical support for the development of new plays and musicals.
