Ego Actus (production company) is Latin for “my way.” Joan Kane and Bruce A! Kraemer created an independent theater in company in 2009 dedicated to doing art for art’s sake. Each artist brings his or her own way of creating to our shows and we unify them into a collective “my way.” Joan directs and Bruce designs, they both produce.
Everything we have presented until this show has been on the island of Manhattan or in Europe. Our off-Broadway shows have included Play Nice! at 59e59 theaters and I Know What Boys Want at Theatre Row. We presented both Safe and what do you mean in Planet Connections, the East to Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We have also produced shows in the Prague Fringe, the United Solo Festival, and the Midtown International Festival. We have done Equity productions at Theatre Row, Theater for a New City, the Bleecker St Theater, Urban Stages, the Dorothy Strelsin Theater, and the WorkShop Theater. We are affiliated with the League of Independent Theater, A.R.T/NY, and Fractured Atlas.
