Incorrigible Entertainment

(shows about incorrigible women by incorrigible women)

Incorrigible Entertainment (Janet Roston, Director/Choreographer/360º Director; Cindy Shapiro, Composer/Librettist/Technologist) have been a creative force since 2014, innovating work around female agency that blends new music with compelling drama, spectacular dance sequences, projections and state-of-the-art technology. Their work has been shown in venues on both the east and west coasts of the United States, as well as internationally at the Festival l’OFF d’Avignon, La Nouvelle Eve, Paris and has opened the International Theatre Festival in Casablanca, Morocco. 


Their first work was an opera about the myth of Psyche (Psyche: First Upon a Time) which grew out of an artist residency that Composer/Librettist Cindy Shapiro secured with Cité Internationale des Arts in 2011. Their second ground-breaking theatrical work, Anaïs Nin, Unbound, centered around famed diarist and proto-feminist Anaïs Nin. It drew international attention and was supported by the Anaïs Nin Trust as well as Nin’s publisher and editor Paul Herron. Her Mind’s Eye (which had an artist residency at the Coliseu/Balleteatro in Porto, Portugal 2021) is their third fully sung/danced through work which utilises new and innovative technologies to bring audiences deeply into Hildegard’s mind. 


Incorrigible Entertainment continues to draw to their projects world-renowned talent to support their vision and their ongoing mission to inspire audiences with stories about women who cannot be contained.
