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 to 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 produced our first show, One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace, partnering 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. For our final production of our inaugural season, Morning in America, we will partner with IL Vote at Home.
