The Big Idea.
Welcome to Spinning Dot Theatre.
Spinning Dot Theatre creates
innovative and exciting international plays
for kids and their families.
For everyone, really.
Global stories make the world feel bigger and smaller at the same time.
And our world needs that right now – especially young people.
Spinning Dot Theatre launched in August 2014 with the goal to make great global theatre to inspire and connect our audiences with the rest of the world.
Since then our Repertory Company,
a group of talented and engaged professional theatre artists from SE Michigan,
have performed in three productions from around the world:
The Cat Who Ran from Japan in 2014
This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing from Australia in 2015
Only a Day from Germany in 2016
Our Youth Company,
a dynamic group of young artists between the ages of 8-14,
has created numerous international productions as well including:
The Bridge from Kosovo in 2015
Winner Takes All? From Denmark in 2016
Our Youth Programs,
International Summer Theatre camps and workshops
in collaboration with Ann Arbor Civic Theatre,
have focused on both international cultures and guest artists
as well as teaching the craft of theatre including acting, directing, and design.
Global Spark! Camps in 2014-2016
G2T Camps (Global Teen Theatre Camps) 2015-2016
And lastly our Artist in Residency and Satellite programs,
programs designed to support theatre artists in creating a new play,
has created four new productions including:
Sedna by Kelly Joyce Fielder in 2015
A Mouth With Flame by Tae Hoon Yoo in 2016
Ruff and Ruff Xmas by Kelly Joyce Fielder in 2016
I love Spinning Dot’s energy, their ideas, and how they work with kids. It’s physical…it’s just so much more than I could ever dream of and think of. Their level of theatre and experience is beyond exceptional!Venus
