Some of what we do is slippery to categorize-
~ park adventures that can be performed with and for the community along rivers or parks, and other public spaces
~ civic-planning charettes,
~ cumulative installations that aggregate into podcasts,

~ spectacles that can translate into museums,
~ producing showcases and festivals
~ daydreams that turn into 2-day long wishes for Make A Wish...

In these pages, you can have a look at a few different ideas. If you are looking for your own special 'something', and it's not quite here, let's talk.   Perhaps we can create it with you.

We build from the imagination up.
theater simple was founded with the goal of stripping the theatrical experience down to its elemental parts:
   ~ the imagination of the actor and audience,
   ~  the playwright's words
   ~  and the ensemble's vision.


For our OUT OF THE BOX work, theater simple has built an award-winning rep by creating interactive public events, aimed to inspire community dialogue linking ideas and art with daily LIFE. 
We work outside of the box,
thinking globally and acting locally.
We create theater. Simple.

PARK BENCH is an interactive public art piece that often resembles a tiny park on a rolling hill, where we invite people to have a seat and have a chat from a slightly different perspective. We ask you to tell us your thoughts, and we’ll tell the world.  But…. COVID-19 has impacted our lives/work, too -  SO we adapt~

These are recorded phone calls and cellphone-recorded voice memos. You will hear differences in recording quality as we go, but hopefully you can still hear the CONVERSATION, and engage with that wherever you are.
