Susan Feldman, President and Artistic Director, St. Ann's Warehouse, has built a career activating found spaces and turning them into cultural destinations, starting with the adaptive re-use of the landmark church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity in association with the NY Landmarks Conservancy and World Monuments Fund 35 years ago. Since then, Arts at St. Ann's, now St. Ann's Warehouse, has become a vital international presenter on New York City's cultural landscape, originating such projects as John Cale and Lou Reed's tribute to Andy Warhol, Songs for 'Drella; Band in Berlin, an award-winning production conceived by Susan with Pat Birch and Wilbur Pauley, that toured and went to Broadway; and memorable solo concerts by Marianne Faithfull, Aaron Neville, and Jeff Buckley, among many others. Since moving to DUMBO in 2000, Susan has led the organization in transforming two industrial warehouses into open, flexible theaters, and establishing an American artistic home for a global community of artists, including: the National Theatre of Scotland (Black Watch, Let the Right One In); Kneehigh (Brief Encounter, Tristan & Yseult); TR Warszawa (Festen, Macbeth, performed outdoors in the Tobacco Warehouse); Mark Rylance (Measure for Measure), Daniel Kramer (Woyzeck), Enda Walsh (The Walworth Farce, Misterman with Cillian Murphy); Lou Reed's Berlin with the Sydney Festival; the Donmar Warehouse (all-female Julius Caesar); the Tricycle Theatre (Red Velvet); and American avant-garde masters, The Wooster Group and Mabou Mines. The crowning achievement of Susan's career? Building a permanent home for St. Ann's in an historic Tobacco Warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront, a year-round cultural center and community hub in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, opening in Fall 2015.
