Thank you to writer, James Reddick, and the blog Oakland North, for reviewing Ragged Wing Ensemble's Fall Festival show, Buried in the Body. See excerpt below:
Nearly a decade ago, Anna Shneiderman and Amy Sass were teaching together at a summer theatre camp in Berkeley. Every year, they would put on a staff performance for the students and every time, Shneiderman says, “we were like ‘wait, that was actually the best work we’ve been doing all year.’” So in 2004, realizing they were artistic partners, the two decided to start a theater company. Shneiderman moved to the East Bay from Chicago, Sass’s husband Keith Davis joined the team and Ragged Wing Ensemble was born. Ten years later, the company has grown into a creative incubator, performing a series of multidisciplinary productions around a common theme every year and offering youth theater workshops and apprenticeships. And in the spring of 2014, the group will move into a permanent home in Downtown Oakland, the first indoor space in the city dedicated solely to local theater.
