Umo logo 2In the past seventeen years, UMO Ensemble has become known as one of the most innovative, compelling, and critically acclaimed performance companies based in the Pacific Northwest. The Ensemble has performed in theaters, at festivals, and in schools throughout the Northwest, the United States, Canada, and Europe.

UMO began their creative collaboration in 1987. The company is committed to an Ensemble of performers who create and compose their own productions. The Ensemble's creative process is rooted in physical theatre. Improvisations in movement, character, vocalizing, and writing are the basis for the creation and development of new works. For each piece there is a member of the Ensemble who serves as artistic director, holding the larger picture in mind. Since their arrival on Vashon Island in 1989, UMO Ensemble has created over twenty original works for the theatre.
