With two brand-new original shows in the works, 2020 is shaping up to be our most-ambitious year yet!
Coming in May: Flying and Falling is a celebration of humanity’s desire to fly is inspired by the history and mythologies surrounding Icarus, Leonard da Vinci and Amelia Earhart. Flying and Falling brings these famous characters together in a new myth –told through a unique blend of physical theatre, puppetry, and multimedia– about the risk, failure, and triumph that is the process of dreaming and creating.
Then in the fall of 2020: Monsterheart is a dreamlike adaptation that takes a new look at Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, focusing on the life of its author and her relationship with her husband, legendary Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Mary and Percy's love affair entwines with that of Victor Frankenstein and his Creature to explore the making of monsters. More poetry than prose, Monsterheart highlights key moments from both fact and fiction to reveal different layers of meaning and evoke unique sensual and emotional responses from the audience.
You are at the center of our work. You, the audience, come first in every artistic decision we make because you’re the reason we make work and we can’t make work without you. About 50% of our budget comes from individual ticket sales and small donations from people just like you. Your support helps us create new, exciting, cutting-edge theater.
For Give to the Max Day 2019, our board has given us a challenge: raise $2,000 this year and they’ll match each contribution dollar-for-dollar. Your donation today in any amount will help us meet our $4,000 goal and put us on the road to staging two brand-new shows in 2020.
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.
GiveMN is an independent nonprofit organization working to ignite generosity and grow giving through GiveMN.org, Minnesota’s giving marketplace, and RaiseMN, a fundraising coaching and training program.
