Eddie is a nonbinary director, choreographer, writer, and designer, who uses physical theater and rigorous collaboration to investigate the best and worst of human nature both in new work and traditional scripts. Their work strives to unify all elements of theater in a complete emotional and physical journey, to make epic, transformational experiences where artists and audiences alike can feel empowered and form human connections.  Their conviction is that active and engaging storytelling provokes an indelible experience that changes lives.

Eddie is the kind of director who asks you to walk off a cliff in the name of making good theater, which seems like a bad idea until you realize that it’s an invitation to fly.

Eddie DeHais’ direction is exquisite. You do not see it or notice it so much as feel it moving everything forward: Story, tech, people all moving forward towards an uncertain future.

This kind of show - non-realistic, immediate, entirely in & of its necessary medium - should be more common. But this quality of show will always be rare; this much time, attention, and heart isn’t easily or frequently poured into a piece to this effect. [The performers] put all the humor, precision, pathos, and vulnerability on stage that they can muster, directed with characteristically vivid urgency and atomic-clock-timing by Eddie DeHais.
