Why Grey Noise?
Founding artistic director Jess Meyer-Crosby has a background in and affinity for sound design and the powerful emotions that "noise" can inspire in the context of theatrical performance. Their creativity thrives through the onstage mediums of sound, music, and movement. Their spouse and professional partner, Ben, is the technical and business mind behind their artistic endeavors. He keeps the company in line with its mission and makes their productions possible. Together the two of them spend their days seeing the worlds in shades of grey. Neither just creative nor just practical, neither wholly good nor wholly bad, neither strictly classic nor strictly modern--nothing is as simple as it seems.
