Collective Unconscious Performance creates original, ensemble-driven theatre in Minneapolis, MN
Inspired by the universal human experiences found in myths and fairy tales, Collective Unconscious Performance re-imagines and re-tells stories that have stayed with us for centuries. Collective Unconscious’ mission is to create original plays that examine the complexities and contradictions found within these age-old stories. Collective Unconscious strives to transform narratives in order to give voice to the voiceless, to spotlight stories that are not often presented onstage, and to foster ongoing community dialogue.

October 5-14, 2018 at the Art Box
Paris, 1690, the center of culture:
Marie-Catherine d’Aulnoy and her non-conformist friends fight for independence
and equality during the oppressive reign of King Louis XIV. Through
storytelling and champagne-infused salons, these women critiqued and challenged
society’s expectations for women over 100 years before the first wave of
feminism. Marie-Catherine and her crew were best-selling authors in their day, and
invented fairy tales as we know them. So whatever happened to these bold,
groundbreaking women, and the subversive fairy tales that they spun?
Le Cirque Féerique asks: How may a strong, independent woman live
the life she dreams and make her voice truly heard in a patriarchal system? How
does one seek out authenticity and independence when society tries to silence
your voice at nearly every turn?
