About us



Infinite Stage was founded in 2005 by Leslie Felbain, Susan Haedicke, and a core company of actors, all graduates of the American Conservatory Theater MFA Program in San Francisco, where Felbain was one of their teachers. The group initially convened to create and perform a single cabaret in New York City, and decided to formalize as a theater collective after receiving enthusiastic response from audiences in New York City and Washington DC.  In 2008 Daniel Pinha joined the company after collaborating  on a production at the Clarice Smith Performance Arts Center. Since its inception, Infinite Stage has devoted itself to creating inter-disciplinary and multi-cultural work as well as teaching creative process and communications skills through design and performance techniques. The company has enganged workshops and residencies in colleges, universities, cultural organizations, medical facilities, museums and community centers throughout the world. Our working process involves the immersion into a community or subject through the collection of personal stories, historical data and relevant current events. Our collective of collaborators has grown and we continue to refine the approach we use to create our work.
