We may be new on the block, but Loudmouth Collective is rooted in using experienced and well known artists in the Twin Cities to create strong companies and production teams, people whose work our audiences want to see. We put together groups of people who we admire, who we like to work with, and who we would be glad to hang out with over a long rehearsal and performance process. We pick our shows with specific artists in mind, or pick an artist and find the right show to do with them. We won’t produce a show (no matter how much we love the script) unless we know we can get the perfect artists for it.
Loudmouth Collective is looking forward to seeing you at a show, but we also want you to know a bit about where we are coming from.
We create community
We seek out teams and artists who work together well. It’s our belief that when our artists are a community, it’s much easier to bring our audience into that.
We have fun
Theater is what you make of it, so we make sure to have a good time on stage so you can have a good time in your seat.
Loudmouth Collective is moved by what a small ensemble or even one solo performer can do.
We want to share a drink
We love our audiences, and want to get to know them. We’ll always have our artists or staff at the bar after, to talk about the show.
We get it
It’s important to us that we investigate everyday struggles, things that happen to people like us. This way we can actually understand.
We love language
Our heroes are playwrights like Will Eno, Daniel MacIvor, Rajiv Joseph. We seek out minimal and very specific language that we understand and can uncover.
We don’t waste your time
Who wants to sit through a three hour show with two intermissions? Our shows are short so we can get right to the point, the story.
We are sick of apathy
We want to laugh, cry, smile, get angry, or just feel something. Maybe our stories don’t move you to campaign for human rights, but they’re stories that will move you.
We tell stories
Above all else, we tell stories that ought to be told.
