Combustible Company is working to expand its network of artistic collaborators, with a particular focus on performers of color in the Twin Cities.
We are hosting a three-hour workshop for interested performers of color on Saturday, October 21st from 2-5 p.m. Combustible Company members will also participate in this workshop, giving you insight into Combustible Company's devising process as well as our unique, physical approach to theater that will also prove useful to your own work. It's a mutual opportunity to play together, see how we work, and give us a chance to get to know you as a performer and potential collaborator for future projects as well.
While this workshop is not an audition for a particular production, you may be asked to return for a more targeted workshop audition later this fall for our spring 2018 production, and all participants may be considered for future Combustible Company productions.
To register: Please use this form to signup online or email your questions to [email protected]. Space is limited. Preference will be given to non-union performers. The workshop will take place at the Center for Performing Arts. We look forward to seeing you there!
About Combustible Company
Combustible Company uses actors’ physicality to create visceral performances that spark the imagination and ignite conversation. We draw upon the power of the actor’s body to discover and perform stories. We continually push the bounds of our craft and creativity, challenging ourselves and emerging with new insight, new skills, and new strength. We explore the human psyche, creating performances that allow the audience to derive new meaning from spoken and unspoken language. We strive to transform a space, creating an atmosphere that is charged with emotion. We work to transcend barriers and strengthen communities. We seek universal human stories, including devised and published works, to help audiences better understand themselves and each other as well as the world around them.
Our production history includes Bluebeard’s Dollhouse (2016), an original site-specific adaptation of A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen at the James J Hill House, and Herocycle (2013), an original epic play-with-music about notorious daredevil Evel Knievel. Our next production will be at the new Gremlin Theatre in spring 2018.
