Theater That Ignites

Combustible Company looks for new ways to tell stories.  As artists our quest has been to simultaneously break both the story and the mode of storytelling apart so that it can coalesce into something new for our audience: a shared experience with mythological resonance.  In our work we explore the voice as a gesture of totally embodied emotion with the power to transform words. We seek to make words live as action, emotion and metaphor – sparking imagination and inviting connection.  

Help Us Celebrate 10 Years!

With your support, we'll find new ways to tell stories for 10 more years - in ways that are intellectual, emotional and physical. Actors and audiences will share the experience and a destiny. Join our mission of bringing the creativity of the human body and the story of the human experience to the stage. 

Help Us Set the Stage for 2023!

In February 2022, we produced our newest original show, and Twin Cities theatrical debut, Monster Heart at the Southern Theater in MinneapolisYou are at the center of our work. Your support helps us create new, exciting, cutting-edge theater, and we can’t create without you.

We have several exciting productions in the works for 2023 and beyond including site specific devised work as well as scripted plays including a new adaption of Eugene O'Neil's The Hairy Ape, and Night Witches, an original aerial physical theatre work about WW2 Russian women pilots. 

For Give to the Max Day 2022, 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 2023.
