As we continue to grow and change and learn and adapt on our journey to live the best artistic lives we can, Savage Umbrella is thrilled to announce an expansion of our company.
We simultaneously felt the need to spread and reach artistically, and at the same time, hone and focus our core administration and support systems. I couldn't be more excited for both of these opportunities; it feels like refinement and precision paired with wild experimentation and abandon. The juxtaposition is thrilling.
We introduce our new(ish) Core Company: members who have dedicated time, talent, and focus to the development of Savage Umbrella's methods for years. These Core Company Members will continue with Savage Umbrella in the areas of administration, artistic development, and leadership: Russ Dugger, Heidi Jedlicka Halvarson, Hannah K. Holman, Laura Leffler-McCabe, and Carl Atiya Swanson.
The bigger news is the introduction of our new Company Members. While the designation is new, the people certainly aren't. These artists have worked with us over the course of many shows and seasons. This new Company Member status is a deepening and expanding of their current relationship with Savage Umbrella. We approached ten amazing artists and were overwhelmed by the response: all ten enthusiastically agreed to join us under the umbrella. We're so in love. <3 <3 <3

These Company Members will bring a new vitality and a richness of ideas, and we are overjoyed. See the freshly updated About page on our website to read more about our new Company Members. Current Company Member Lisa Brimmer will stay on in this role!
At the same time, we say a fond farewell and send many well-wishes to our beloved Mason Mahoney (who is moving to Los Angeles and will stay under the umbrella as a member of our Artistic Advisory Board). We're all about new adventures and we're so proud of him.
And as the great philosopher Buzz Lightyear always says, "To infinity... and beyond!"
