Our History

Espace Freestanding Room was established in 2008 by founder Johanna Nutter:

“I based it on a long-standing poker game I used to play; we had a magic number of players who would meet every week. If someone wanted out, they had to find their own replacement. This way, the group never suffered from the pains of expansion or contraction, and the periodic infusions of new blood kept things dynamic. I thought i could apply that structure to an artistic relationship. I also wanted to foster a higher level of communication and co-production within the acting community as a whole and this model struck me as both independent and inclusive enough to make that happen.”
