Jeff Colangelo and Katy Tye founded Prism Movement Theater after collaborating on their first shows while both students at Southern Methodist University. Jeff, a fight choreographer, and Katy, an acrobat and dancer found that their particular movement aesthetics could be combined to create entire narratives without using any words. This partnership blossomed into several more productions until finally PMT was formed.
Prism believes in storytelling through movement. Whether that be through dance, stage combat, mime, weight sharing, clowning and simple everyday actions, we believe each motion is a piece of text. With this philosophy, we believe can reach even more beautiful heights artistic expression and plunge even further into the complex depths of the human subconscious all without uttering a single word.
