Overview


Degenerate
Art Ensemble

Degenerate Art Ensemble makes live performances inspired by punk, comics, cinema, nightmares and fairy tales driven by live music and our own style of visceral movement theater and dance.  Our work is an exorcism through collision and conflict challenging how we see audience, architecture, music, story, myth and reality.  It comes out of a deep desire for communion, soul-exchange and transformation.
