Kenn Watt/The Fifth Floor


Recently based in New York, The Fifth Floor was founded in 1994 in San Francisco by Kenn Watt as a post-modern political theatre of images modeled on a collective aesthetic and organizational practice. Until 2009, the company devised original interdisciplinary theatre pieces with an emphasis on the connections and collisions of its various forms (primarily text, movement, music, set installations, and video). For its 16-year history, The Fifth Floor was interested in reflecting the mediations of contemporary culture and discourse and making dynamic, physical theatre and video projects.

Kenn Watt is getting his PhD in Theatre from the Graduate Center, CUNY and directing in New York.
