Company History

STRANGE ATTRACTOR is Aram Alan Aghazarian, Jed Hancock-Brainerd, Rebecca Noon and Roblin Gray Davis. The four met in 2006 while studying in London at LISPA and united as a company in 2010, creating inviting and unexpected performance that challenges the popular conception of theatre while engaging new audiences with original, high-caliber, physically devised work.

Strange Attractor moves between themes, genres, geographies, and aesthetics. From a quick-change comedy about war in Juneau, AK to a meditation on museum security guard in New England, Strange Attractor creates in theaters, but also for houses, on beaches, and with community centers; for urban and rural audiences; for comedy and for ritual. Our physically-based performance style, the diverse universes we explore, and the characters we discover, unnerve while entertaining and confound while delighting.

Strange Attractor projects have been funded by the RI State Council on the Arts, RI Council on the Humanities, the New England Foundation on the Arts, the Alaska State Council on the Arts, the Rasmuson Foundation, the Network of Ensemble Theaters, and was awarded a Motif Award for “Best Intimate Performance.”
