Everywhere Theatre Group attempts to stage the World Wide Web in The Internet. Fusing dance,
movement, video, music, original and found texts, ETG examines what lies beneath the cool,
sleek surface of the information super highway. By asking what propels people into the shadowy
underworld of the Web, where one desires to objectify bodies and see people fail, ETG aims to
find the root of human connection at its newest form.
Everywhere Theatre Group is Leah Winkler, Chase Voorhees, Teddy Nicholas and Lindsay
Mack. Since 2008, they have produced plays at Dixon Place (Untitled- A Play), The Ontological-
Hysteric Incubator (Sintesi Dogpile Show, A Pale Horse, Death and Hell Followed With…),

Original Series), which received its world premiere in December 2009.
About Incubator Arts Project
The Incubator Arts Project supports independent, experimental performing artists through a
series of programs aimed at offering production opportunities and guidance with long-term growth
and artistic sustainability. Its programs primarily support world premieres of original work and also
include a concert series, work in progress opportunities and artist salons and roundtables.
The Incubator Arts Project grew out of the Incubator, a project of the Ontological-Hysteric
Theater. In 2010, the Ontological-Hysteric Theater announced that it would leave its permanent
home, St. Mark’s Church, and that the Incubator would take over the space and operate year-
Beginning in 1993, the Ontological-Hysteric Theater, in addition to its primary support of the
work of Richard Foreman, opened its doors to emerging, independent artists. Since 1993
the emerging artists program at the Ontological took many forms, including the Obie-winning
Blueprint Series for emerging directors. In 2005, the OHT reorganized the programs under the
name INCUBATOR, creating a series of linked programs to provide young theater artists with
resources and support to develop process-oriented, original theatrical productions. By 2010, the
program had quadrupled in size, involving a range of artists and increased support. The programs
included the centerpiece Residency program for premieres, two annual music festivals, a regular
concert series, a serial work-in-progress program called Short Form, and roundtables and salons
aimed at keeping Incubator artists involved year-round. In May, 2010, the Incubator received an
OBIE grant.
