Theatre Louisiane is a performance laboratory that encourages exchanges of artistic ideas. It was founded in New Orleans in 1999, & was incorporated as a non-profit, private professional arts organization in the Great State of Louisiana in 2001. Theatre Louisiane (aka 'Tit-Loo) has received critical acclaim for highly diverse artist-centered performances that range from progressive, revisionist versions of the classics, to cutting edge plays, to organic original projects. Our artists prefer non-traditional projects & the pushing of boundaries. We're committed to bringing accessible, affordable, high-quality artistic presentation to South Louisiana & beyond. A key part of our mission has always been to offer work that is not typically done in this region so that audiences can experience new work despite their financial or social status. We are by Louisianians. And ultimately we are for Louisianians. The artists of 'Tit-Loo were recognized as "People to Watch" by New Orleans magazine for 2006-07.

'Tit-Lou has created 12 performance pieces, in 20 critically-acclaimed production runs, in 11 different spaces. These include:

  • The acclaimed solo show Moon Cove (New Orleans: 2013, 2012 & 2008, Vermont: 2009)
  • The Insanity of Mary Girard (New Orleans: 2013)
  • The original work dis+graced (in March 2006, one of the first shows staged in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina - which then toured to the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival in Canada).
  • Lovecraft's The Music of Erich Zann (debuted in New Orleans in 2001 & 2005, then toured to McNeese University in December 2005)
  • The multimedia anti-war epic The Seven (New Orleans: 2004)

'Tit-Loo operates as a collective: a laboratory of allied professional aritsts who their pool resources (venue, publicity, staff) to create their body of work. We use a method of long-term creative development to enhance our artistic results. We emphasize the collaborative & the experimental, & we pursue the creation of visionary, vibrant performance work.

Come out and catch a show!
