Our Vision

This time, it’s more than a theater

We want to build a home for new collaboratively created theater in the Twin Cities. A place where the artists in our community go to build work for our community and beyond. A place where theater lovers can go to see the best work created here, by local artists, for them. A place of learning, helping, sharing.

“Nimbus is a destination for new plays."

- John Townsend, Lavender Magazie
The Company

About the company

It all started at the Minnesota Fringe Festival, 15 years ago. Two friends, both writers, started a theater company. They had both fallen in with theater kids in college, and were inspired by the collaborative approaches to creating work being pioneered by groups like SITI Company and Theater De La Jeune Lune. What would happen if you took the writer out of the coffee shop, and put them in the rehearsal room? They raised a few hundred dollars, submitted an application and decided to find out.

"Theater is changing. Our facilities need to change with it."

- Josh Cragun, co-Artistic Director, nimbus
2303 Kennedy

2303 Kennedy

Located in NE Minneapolis, our new home is situated at 2303 Kennedy St. NE, just a block off Stinson between Hennepin and Broadway Avenues.

With nearly 30’ ceilings, this 7000 square foot space contains exactly what we need to create theater- wide open space. It features a gorgeous brick exterior, and striking industrial interior that fits the theme of new work well- this is a place where things are made.
