Connective Theatre Company is committed to telling stories that connect reason and emotion, provoke critical consciousness, and facilitate a path to action.
We believe in creating a safe environment for all artists. Connective Theatre Company abides by the Chicago Theatre Standards and is committed to providing a fight choreographer for any production that requires staged violence, and an intimacy designer for any production containing sexual content and/or nudity.
Connective Theatre Company was founded in the fall of 2018 as a collective of Chicago artists committed to creating diverse stories for the stage. The ensemble was originally comprised of strangers who envisioned a space where they could meet, work, and support each others’ varying artistic goals. Through partnerships with local organizations and community engagement, CTC hopes to not only create thrilling art, but to make a tangible impact on our city and the world at large.
In March of 2019, Connective Theatre Company was chosen to become a Producing Resident with Nox Arca Theatre for our 2019/2020 season. Here, we put on our first show, One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace produced in partnership with RefugeeOne. Next, we paired with Awakenings to create Me Too Monologues, a writing workshop-turned-performance focusing on the stories of survivors of sexual violence.
