We Theater is an emerging physical theater company whose mission is to connect communities through culturally intersectional storytelling. We are committed to creating challenging, ensemble-driven, imaginative, artistically refined and accessible new work that inspires a curiosity for life as it is, and a vision for life as it could be.
In September 2012, after running a successful fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, We Theater hosted a developmental devising workshop for The Shadow War in collaboration with the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT.) At the end of the workshop, a public presentation and discussion was held at The Lowry Lab Theatre in St. Paul, MN.
In July 2013, We Theater was awarded a $10,000 Arts Activities Support Grant through The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council to fund the world premier production of The Shadow War which will be presented at The Wellstone Center/Neighborhood House in April 2014. We Theater proudly collaborated with The Center for Hmong Studies and The Lao Assistance Center to bring this shared story to life.
We Theater is currently in the research and development phase of a new project on the conversation surrounding the topic of U.S. Immigration. More information coming soon...
