Artistic Director Aaron Ganz shares his vision of performing arts leadership.
"And they live untouched by sorrow in the islands of the blessed along the shore of deep-swirling Ocean, happy heroes for whom the grain-giving earth bears honey-sweet fruit..."
— Hesiod, Works and Days (170)
In Greek mythology, Elysium (Greek: Ἠλύσιον πέδιον) is a conception of paradise. Only those who lived heroic lives were deemed admission, where they would live throughout eternity blessed and happy - working at whatever they loved most, alongside those they most loved working with.
We, at Elysium Conservatory Theatre, are building such a paradise — where artists train together, create together, and Grow Fearless together - all in search of the deepest levels of poetic truth.
Elysium Conservatory Theatre grows fearless artistic expression within our community of emerging artists, guest artists and resident teaching artists - all invested in each other's success.
The mainstage theatre experience at ECT is just that - an experience. Productions redefine the relationship between audience and performer - offering soaring, human stories with immersive, imaginative staging. Performances are filled with passion, texture, raw humanity and a formidable ensemble spirit.
