NOTE: In late 2010, Bedlam lost their lease at 1501 S. 6th Street. Until they find a permanent home, the theatre is presenting shows at various venues in Minneapolis.
Celebrating the “bold,” the “avant garde,” and the “absurd,” the Bedlam Theatre is a refreshing presence on the vibrant Minneapolis arts scene, providing performance (and performance art) that is filled with exciting risks and unexpected departures. Eschewing the traditional theatrical form, audiences taking in a Bedlam production can expect a daring experience incorporating music and dance, puppetry and spectacle.
A year-round calendar of international events promises no two weeks are ever the same; a formula that has developed Bedlam a devout following of renaissance bohemians and steadfast Minnesotans eager to take on the gutsy experience of the troupe’s evolving art.
