Founded by Joan Kane and Bruce Kraemer, Ego Actus (Latin for "My Way") is dedicated to doing art for art’s sake. We produce, direct and design plays that are presented as a complete audience experience using all the elements of theatre: developed scripts, accomplished acting, and designs for set, costumes, lighting, sound and props by people who have made those disciplines a focus of their lives. They each bring their own way of doing things to our shows and we unify them into a collective “My Way.” We are affiliated with the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York, Fractured Atlas, and the League of Independent Theater.
"The flow of the dramatic direction by Joan Kane is enhanced by Bruce A! Kraemer's lighting…"
