Crockpot Theatre is a collection of new works created by artists across disciplines. Its premiere was at Phoenix Theatre in Minneapolis, March 2019. Arts Nest was co-producer on the event.
Crockpot assembles a team of incredible artists - from dancers to illustrators to actors to poets. Each artist is given common ‘ingredients’ they must include in their work. Over 6 weeks, they create a new work from scratch, and when it’s done simmering, they serve it up to you ---with a gallery showing and performance.
The Twin Cities are full of artists of all interests and passions. I've been lucky to meet a lot of folks with all kinds of creative pursuits. Crockpot was born from a desire to cross-pollinate between the art forms.
Crockpot is an event that will incorporate all types of artists doing what they love.
