"Quirky" , "Really funny" with "Sparks of brilliance" and "An intriguing idea with loads of potential." - LA Weekly
Started during the dot com revolution, Tilted Frame has been pushing the envelope of multi-media production for more than seven years. Opening with Taste Like Random in the summer of 2002, Tilted Frame used video and the Internet in a way no other company had before. Now, with troupes in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Tilted Frame has further experimented with and expanded the format of the show to premiere the first-ever, recurring, cross-state performance in theater.
Combined Artform has been producing new and classic works in the performance scene for over ten years. Created by Producing Artistic Director Matthew Quinn and Bertha Rodriguez in 1998, they were joined by Steve Kahn in 1999, and have collaborated with actors, singers, filmmakers, sketch comedy groups, musicians, improvisers, and fine artists in hundreds of shows, including Santaland Diaries, Eavesdropper (SF), PAPA, Tilted Frame ÂÂÂÂ SF & LA, the SF Solo Festival, and recently with PianoFight on Shortlived and FORKING (LA). They built Off-Market Theaters in 2005 and took over Theatre Asylum in Los Angeles in 2007. They continue to develop the connection between SF and LA as well different arts and artists to be a part of the evolution of performance and production. www.combinedartform.com
