In 2013, Plump Olive Productions (POP) began creating and producing original ensemble-driven works in Philadelphia. To date, POP’s work weaves together clown, dance, performance art, art-installation, and ritual experience. In Philadelphia, POP has presented work as part of Between A Boat and Green Place at Bartram’s Garden, Four Weeks in January, FringeArt’s Scratch Night, and SoLow Fest. Past full-theatre production works include The Gathering of the Mother Moth People; an exploration of ritual and spiritual pursuit guided by some wildly naïve clowns (1fiftyone Gallery, 2015), David & Oliver: Mystic Masters; a collaboration between Artistic Director Oliver Jane and playwright David Jacobi about their collective experiences as students of metaphysics (SoLow Fest, 2016). Plump Olive Productions remains as the US-production arm of Goat Howl, facilitating dual-national collaborations.
Also in 2013, Third Guest Theatre began ensemble-driven devised creation in Paris in collaboration with FAClab. They debuted Skeleton Woman and began workshopping Transhumanism, naturally, which is currently in a second phase of development under Goat Howl funded by the OAC. Third Guest has since changed names to Goat Howl.
