As befits a shadowy and mysterious head of state, not much is known about the President. He does have a twitter account, and he likes wearing top hats and monocles.

MR. PRESIDENT

GUY YEDWAB

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Brooklyn based, Israeli born, California bred. Trained at NYU's Experimental Theater Wing before realizing that his true calling was to gamble it all by founding a theater company with his own sweat and blood, and maintaining a blog about arts policy. He also occasionally contributes to StageGrade, plays Circle Rules Football, and drinks inhuman and dangerous amounts of tea.

Benjamin is a recovering “Theatre” artist based in New York City and has been a member of Organs of State since 2010. Born as Juan Carlos Torres Sanchez in Bogotá, Colombia, he moonlights as J.C. Torres: writer of short fictions, and self-mythologies. He is also a teaching artist for Opening Act (openingactnewyork.org), and a member of the 2012 EmergeNYC cohort at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. Recent credits outside of Organs of State: The Same Colombian: a tęte-ŕ-tęte for two (Performed, La MaMa, E.T.C.), Lost in Flight (Directed, 3LD Art & Technology Center), A New Game… (Directed, The Morgan Library & Museum.)

Hailing from Los Angeles, a student of psychology and advertising at NYU who joined the Organs of State brigade in 2009 after an exemplary stint as spotlight operator in the 2010 Organs of State piece "The End".

When not pounding the pavement for The State, Euthymios enjoys whittling, basket weaving and appreciating the finer arts.
