Create high-spirited theatre –
Of the more than 65 shows that Theatre de la Jeune Lune has produced, 34 have been company-created original works. Linking past performance traditions, from circus and classical farce to commedia dell-arte and vaudeville, to their present function within the community of cultural production, Jeune Lune creates a new kind of theatre that is immediate, passionately physical and visually spectacular.
Offer training Designed to encourage emerging artists to develop themselves as authors/actors, two apprentices each year are chosen through a national audition process for a nine-month residency with the company. Theatre de la Jeune Lune has trained more than 1,500 actors in its unique performing style. In workshops, they receive instruction in acrobatics, physical theater and character building.
Afford Quality –
Theatre de la Jeune Lune has a long history of regional and national awards, and has received much critical acclaim for its exuberant physicality and keen visual and emotional sensibilities projected in each work. We hope to make excellent theatre available to everyone by offering tickets as low as $10 on Thursday nights.
Include Educators and Students –
Theatre de la Jeune Lune offers subsidized student matinees, which reach thousands of students each season from the Twin Cities metropolitan area and small towns in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North Dakota. Free preview performances for educators and student study guides enable teachers to better understand Jeune Lune’s work and incorporate issues into their curricula.
