Co-Artistic Director/ Technical Director
Quentin Madia is a New York and New Jersey-based director, choreographer, and designer whose work bridges the gap between commercial musical theatre and experimental ensemble work telling stories about ambition, loss, and memory.
In my work, I investigate and reimagine the heart of the play by exposing the underutilized and less elements of the story, using dance, projection, 21-century digital technology, and the integration of young actors into the ensemble. Additionally, Quentin leads a New Jersey based organization that offers a broad theatre education to the youth in the community, providing a safe learning space with numerous opportunities for a diverse population of kids and teens at a low cost. Our philosophy is: theatre for the kids, by the kids.
Directing/Choreography Credits include: Bonnie and Clyde (TDT), Blood Brothers (NJ Repertory Theatre), Gathering Sparks (GenWhy, International, Thailand), Rent (NJ Rep Theatre), Jamming Jukebox Musical Revue (NJRep, Disney World), All Shook Up (NJ Rep Theatre), Once On This Island (NJ Rep Theatre), and more. Tech Production Credits: Tennessee Williams 1982 (Off-Bway, Projections), Embodi(ED) (Girl Be Heard, HERE Arts Center, Proj.), Our Class (dir. Cosmin Chivu, Proj), 4.48 Psychosis (TDT, Projections & Lights), Fires in the Mirror (TDT, Projections & Lights), and more. Quentin is also the current Artistic Director of New Jersey Repertory Theatre in South Brunswick, NJ.
Quentin has worked in NYC, Off-B’way, Off-Off B’way, and throughout New Jersey including McCarter Theatre, New Jersey Repertory Theatre, Porchlight Productions, Villagers Theatre, and South Brunswick School District, as well as running his own private teaching studio for tap, musical theatre dance, acting, and choreography. Quentin attends Pace University for a BA in Directing under the International Performance Ensemble.
