About AntiGravity

HISTORY

Kym Moore and Michael T. Williams founded the Company in 2012 with a three-venue tour of Erik Ehn’s Yermedea, culminating at La MaMa E.T.C. as part of Soulographie: Our Genocides (Lead Artists: Kym Moore, Erik Ehn, Ale Prieto). Francesca Montaile Lyons and Michael Costagliola joined the Company for this first work, as Education Outreach Coordinator and Composer/Sound Designer, respectively. The company’s second work, Nellie/Nellie, premiered in Philadelphia’s FringeArts Festival in September 2014 (Lead Artists: Michael T. Williams and Michael Costagliola). Up next, Dear Diary LOL (Lead Artist: Francesca Montanile Lyons). AntiGravity splits its time between Providence, Brooklyn, New Haven and Philadelphia, in addition to anywhere they can find where artists are bustling.
