    Happenstance Theater is a professional company committed to devising, producing and touring original, performer-created visual, poetic Theatre. Under the artistic co-direction of Mark Jaster and Sabrina Mandell they harvest imagery from the past and re-contextualize it in works that address eternal themes of life and death. With the simplest means - humor, music, movement, silence, text and beauty - they seek to elevate the moment when the performers and audience meet, to lift the encounter beyond the daily and pedestrian into the realms of dreams, poetry, and art. Meaning is often discovered by happenstance. The Washington City Paper says, ?Happenstance Theater?s ensemble comedy is a gut-busting kind of funny.? The Washington Post describes their work as, ?visually striking and whimsical without being precious,? and calls Happenstance Theater ''DC?s leading peddler of whimsy.? In 2016 Happenstance received three Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Ensemble, Outstanding Costume Design and Outstanding Lead Actor. In 2017 Happenstance received two Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Costume Design and Outstanding Musical Direction. ... read more
