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.  

The Hairy Ape by Eugene O'Neill

Combustible Company’s Performance of The Hairy Ape will be at The Center for Performing Arts in Minneapolis November 10-18, 2023. Directed by Kym Longhi.

A new adaptation of Eugene O’Neill’s classic explores the connections between the rage of the working class, the need for belonging, and the nihilism of the MAGA world. It speaks with eerie resonance of the world in 2023 as much as when it was written in 1922.
