IXION: a Theatre Ensemble


Ixion is an ensemble committed to the magic of collaboration that is live theatre. We seek storytellers of all disciplines to join us as we pursue interesting stories with unique perspectives and innovative styles. 

We are thrilled to be part of such a dynamic and diverse theatre commmunity in Lansing and would like to contribute to this wonderful mix by nurturing new work; new perspectives and reimagining the theatre experience. We hope that the myriad voices we assemble will bring a theatre that is contemporary, compelling and challenging for local audiences.

Theatre is an art form built on collaboration. Not just the collaboration of artistis, but also of audience with performance. It only exists when others join us in exploring story. We hope you will join us on this search to communicate.
