ADAM R. BURNETT is a playwright and theatre-maker. Adam’s surreal theatre work is grounded in the presence of the performer/spectator and the fleeting nature of shared space. His theatre is a space for transparency, transcendence, transgression and community.

In New York his work has been presented at Ars Nova, ART/NY’s Gural Theatre, The Brick, The Bushwick Starr, Dixon Place, The Duplex, Incubator Arts Project/Ontological-Hysteric Theater, The New Ohio, Performance Project @ University Settlement, and Vital Joint. Nationally his work has been presented at The Unicorn in Kansas City, the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans, Highways Performance Space in Los Angeles, Las Vegas Little Theater in Las Vegas, and Tricklock Company in Albuquerque, among others.

Most recently, Adam finished writing a new play entitled Tornado Drill in the Monkey House, a dire & absurd comedy on climate change and resilience. He is currently developing a dance-theater work with choreographer lisa nevada, Untitled:Migrations, on their yearly migration pattern. In January his play HOLIDAYS IN / COYOTE will be presented at The Tank in NYC as part of the Exponential Festival, directed by Jess Chayes.
