Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

— Albert Einstein

theater simple

We build from the imagination up. 
Award-winning, internationally acclaimed theater simple
begins with elemental parts:  imagination, text and movement, + creative vision.

Our goal is to impact everyday creativity by interacting within various communities (teaching, collaborating, and conversing) and by linking ideas and art. 

We aim to create works that inspire, challenge and delight artists and audiences.
