Tess Howsam

Artistic Director of the Exquisite Corpse Company LLC

About Me

Exquisite Corpse Company was first created by Founding Artistic Director Tess Howsam in Fall of 2010 as the kind of theater and collaboration between the arts that she believed was missing. It wasn’t until 2012 when she met Blaire O’Leary that the company came to fruition with the production of inaugural project "Below" at the NYC International Fringe Festival. Below was selected for an extended run as part of the NYC International Fringe Festival ENCORE series at The Soho Playhouse.

Most recently Howsam's creation "The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte" ran for two sold out months on Governors Island and received rave reviews!
