The Pig Iron Theatre Company is a self- proclaimed “dance-clown-theatre ensemble,” proving that this group is as unique as its name. Pig Iron is dedicated to the creation of new and daring performance works that defy easy categorization. Since its creation 12 years ago, the Company has successfully created 22 works and toured all over the world. Philadelphia is lucky that Pig Iron has decided to premiere all of their works at home…how sweet!
One of the most intriguing acts is Miss Martha Graham Cracker, Philadelphia’s most beloved drag queen and alter ego of Pig Iron’s co-creator Dito van Reigersberg. Martha makes appearances all over the city on the cabaret circuit, most frequently at Philly’s cabaret/creperie L’Etage.
With highly-anticipated events like Making Faces: A Deep Dive into Masked Performance with Pig Iron, Pig Iron carries on a conversation that it has been having for over 15 years about masked theatre and how it helps reveal the true actor’s self.
