At the center of the company is The Fire Ensemble–an intergenerational pop-up choir community that centers BIPOC and queer folx. As part of a multiyear residency at The Shed, we invite a range of community members to rehearse, workshop, and perform in transformative large-scale music theater works and rituals rooted in predominantly Black musical styles including gospel, R&B, and musical theater.
Although performances will be moments of culmination and expanding the circle of sharing, the emphasis of our projects are on the process, and the space of community that is built through gathering. Additionally, The Fire Ensemble works with many other artistic institutions to produce a number of workshops and commissioned projects by Troy Anthony.
