The theatre company, convergence-continuum, was founded in 2000 by Clyde Simon and Brian Breth as a not-for-profit corporation in the state of Ohio. The company’s mission is to produce alternative/experimental theatre work by living playwrights and new plays by local playwrights. The company seeks to create a core ensemble that continues to work together over the long term in exploring and developing its artistic voice, and performance and production practices, to create up-close, environmentally-staged productions that challenge the status quo and extend the boundaries of theatre.
From the beginning, convergence-continuum has been known as the producer of innovative, new plays that aren’t likely to be seen anywhere else in the region – works by living playwrights only. Most are Ohio or Cleveland premiers by playwrights currently emerging onto the theatre scene with daring, ground-breaking, topical, challenging, off-the-wall works, which convergence-continuum presents in inventive, frequently multi-media, productions. The company has also produced a number of world premieres by adventurous Cleveland playwrights creating within non-conventional genres.
