Rogue Artists Ensemble has been creating original, site-specific works of immersive, genre defying art for over 20 years.

Our APPROACH is inclusive, collaborative, combustable and always VERY Rogue.

Connecting with the diverse, unique and culturally rich communities in Los Angeles is an essential component to all of Rogue’s work. We strive to build and strengthen our community by valuing what makes us different while embracing all the things that connect us. We are honored to have you as part of our community.

During the depths of the pandemic, with theaters shuttered and Rogue wanting to give artists continued opportunities to share their work, we created the Rogue Academy.

We  created over a dozen videos with topics ranging from comedy to recording sound.

All the projects use simple materials (so you won’t need to leave your house) and provide buckets of ideas for puppet and art making.

A few videos are below and the full series can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
