The SuperGeographic Ensemble Theatre is a new iteration of the company formerly known as In The Water Theatre Company.

In The Water Theatre Company began as a residency on Block Island, Rhode Island, USA in 2015 started by Rachel Lucas, Hayley Sherwood and Jonathan Taikina Taylor. The focus of the residency was an in-house ensemble of international artists led by Jonathan Taylor, Artistic Director. Our primary goal was the creation of In The Water’s first work, Bacchic. Over the next three years we would return to further develop this piece and generate new works such as Moving Mouths, Panic Everything’s Fine and Un Castillo de Cartas.

Our time at Block Island, and the guest artists we hosted there, were essential to the growth of the company. We look back on our years as In The Water and are thankful for all the incredible individuals who helped to build us up and propel us forward into the company’s next chapter.  

In 2019 the company came together with a decision to shift priorities. The ensemble would become the focus of the organization, leaving the residency behind for now. To reflect this rearticulation, we dropped the name In The Water and became The SuperGeographics.

The SuperGeographic Ensemble Theatre is a proud member of the following organizations:

Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York
Network of Ensemble Theaters
