The Wooster Group originated in 1975. The Group has used both personal and Group autobiography, and existing texts as an organizing principle for their work. Sometimes the autobiography is foregrounded and sometimes it is submerged. Sometimes plays are jumping-off points for a piece and sometimes a play as a whole is re-imagined through the prism of our developing aesthetic. The Performing Garage in New York City has been The Wooster Group’s permanent home and performance venue since its beginning and all of their work has been developed there. The Wooster Group owns and operates it as a shareholder in the Grand Street Artists Co-op, which was originally established as part of the Fluxus art movement in the 1960s.
