The Other Mirror creates theatrical art based on event, text, or myth in order to reveal unrealized perspectives. We seek to better understand the world by building a new vocabulary through adaptation. The Other Mirror believes that new work must be created with an emphasis on social consciousness in order to affect change. We share our work through a new lens with a dynamic and fresh point of view.
T.O.M came to be as the brainchild of Founding Artistic Director, Katherine M. Carter, after a reading of her adaptation Madame Bovary. "I threw a reception after the reading to celebrate the work of the cast on this play. Most of them had been with it since the first incarnation and I wanted to say thank you. As Nick and I were cleaning up he tossed out 'you should start a company. You have this great group of artists working with you, why not make it official?' After some careful thought I reached out to our founding members and created The Other Mirror. It was important that T.O.M's mission statement spoke to a specific kind of new work. I had always been drawn to adaptations, it seemed like a natural progression after Madame Bovary." Since its inception The Other Mirror has been committed to developing new work and exploring how adaptations can be used to deepen our understanding of the known.
