We build from the imagination up
Award-winning, internationally acclaimed theater simple began with the aim of stripping the theatrical experience down to its elemental parts:
~ the imagination of the actor and audience,
~ the playwright's words,
~ and the ensemble's vision.
Our goal is to impact everyday creativity by interacting within various communities (teaching, collaborating, and conversing) and by linking ideas and art.
We aim to create works that inspire and challenge artists and audiences.
"ever-ingenious... intriguingly ambitious, physical, and brainy" Edmonton Journal
Founded in Seattle, USA in 1990, theater simple has built an international reputation for producing provocative, innovative, entertaining and frequently “impossible” theatrical experiences. In over 27 years of touring and producing, theater simpletons have produced more than 1200 performances of over 48 plays in four countries on three continents.
In a theater, through a park, or across the internet, we work out of the box and around the world.
Thinking globally, and acting locally – we make theater. Simple.
