Sister Sylvester is the ghost of a nun who haunted the first home/studio/performance venue where Sister made work, and it became the company’s name for its gender-fluid, feminist and spectral associations.
Sister Sylvester makes work, often essayistic performances, using first hand research and found documents. Sister Sylvester invite disruption into both the performance and the process, and look for dissonance and difficulty in text, image and sound.
Sister Sylvester work with animals and technology to make cross species collaborations and cyborg theater. Their first work was about a person who was part cardboard box. Their last, the ways politics forces technology to create new hybrids where computer hardware stands in for a lover’s touch. Housekeepers become their tools of labour with arms replaced by leather brushes. Humans, jellyfish and bacteria unite in a single organism on a petridish stage. They love classic texts from theatre’s underbelly, and their patron saints are Genet, Brecht and Littlewood. Sister Sylvester are based between New York, Texas and Istanbul. Recent work has toured to Bozar, Brussels; Frascati, Amsterdam; Arcola Theater, London; The Public Theater, New York, The Park Avenue Armory, NYC; Bomontiada, Istanbul. They’ve been part of the Devised Theater Working Group, at The Public; The Public’s New Works program, in residence at Brooklyn College; and in residence at The Park Avenue Armory.
Sister Sylvester is led by Kathryn Karaoglu Hamilton. Current collaborators are : Cyrus Moshrefi, Kelsea Martin, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Juan Betancurth, Jacqueline Blaska, Bruce Steinberg.
