Taffety Punk Theatre Co.
What is a Taffety Punk?
We chose a name with classical reverberations and modern kick. The term “Taffety Punk” appears in Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, and in that context means roughly “a well-dressed whore.”
Sound a little crazy?
Consider that 400 years later Uta Hagen, lamenting the death of the actor-driven theatre in America,likened actors to prostitutes pimping themselves to producers.
The word punk now is used to describe members of a rebellious counter culture or a smoldering substance used to ignite fireworks.
Our company members grew up in the punk underground,
and there honed an artistic aesthetic that embraces the positive and the possible. The greatest lessons we learned from Punk Rock: be who you are and fight for your ideals. We continue to do so today, in whatever costumes we are wearing.
We are Taffety Punks.
