Theater That Ignites

Combustible Company uses actors’ physicality to create visceral performances that spark the imagination and ignite conversation.

By drawing upon the imaginative and expressive power of the actor’s body we seek to explore the human psyche to create performances that allow audiences to derive new meaning from spoken and unspoken language. We seek to tell universal human stories by innovative means to spark the imagination and help audiences better understand themselves and the world around them.

Help us reignite the stage in 2022!

You are at the center of our work. You come first with every artistic decision we make. You, as our audience, are the reason we create. Your support helps us create new, exciting, cutting-edge theater, and we can’t create without you.

About half of our budget comes from individual ticket sales and small donations from people just like you, and we can’t wait to show you what we will create with your help this year. 

Setting the Stage for 2022!

After postponing our 2020-2021 season due to COVID-19, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re ready to produce our newest original show, and Twin Cities theatrical debut, Monster Heart at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis in February 2022. 

Monster Heart is a dreamlike adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein that perceives the classic through the lens of the author’s life and relationships, particularly her relationship with her husband, Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. In our feminist approach to the Gothic tale, Mary and Percy's love affair is intertwined with that of Victor Frankenstein and his Creature in an exploration of what it means to ‘make a monster. More poetry than prose, Monster Heart highlights key moments of both fact and fiction to reveal different layers of meaning and evoke profound sensory and emotional responses from the audience.

For Give to the Max Day 2021, all donations up to $1,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Your donation today in any amount will help us meet our overall $2,000 goal and help us Set the Stage for 2022.
