Mission

Our mission is to activate imagination and illuminate community stories to create a more inclusive world.

We are a multicultural, multidisciplinary ensemble of professional artists that collaborates directly with diverse local communities – those who are essential to society but whose stories are often ignored or misunderstood – to forge new ways of seeing our common experiences by creating new art that transforms the past into a better future.

Our method is to listen, wonder, create, and repeat.

Recent productions include Look Again: The Normandale Play Project in collaboration with the Normandale Theater Department 2018-2019 at Normandale Community College; Our House: The Capitol Play Project performed all over the restored state capitol in January 2018; In My Heart: The Adoption Play Project, staged at Mixed Blood Theatre in December 2016; Six Characters in Search of an Author, presented by Park Square Theatre in April 2016, and The Veterans Play Project, co-produced with Mixed Blood Theater at Fort Snelling in November 2013. Coming soon, the Incarceration Play Project, to be presented hopefully in 2021 at Mixed Blood Theatre; public safety story circles; a podcast about civic engagement; the illustrated adoption play project; and so much more.
