Elle Thoni is a playwright, performance-maker, public artist, producer, and arts organizer working in/with the Upper Mississippi watershed, on Dakota land. Elle draws on theatre’s mythic roots to tell stories about how our sense of belonging and identity are changing with our climate. Their works are odes to emergent ecologies wherein humans are but one of the actors in a much larger drama. Prone to a lyrical epicness, Elle readily collaborate with movement-based performers, musicians, and makers of all sorts to construct lush, multi-layered performances under the banner of Wild Conspiracy. Their work has been supported by the Jerome Foundation, the Minnesota State Arts Board, and the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. You can find out more and say hello at ellethoni.com
