Indianapolis On Stage: ShadowApe Theatre Company

The ShadowApe Theatre Company usually produces only one show a year in a different venue around Indianapolis, but the company’s productions have lasting power beyond closing night. The performances are so unique, innovative, and edgy that Indianapolis theatre-goers looking for things to do in Indianapolis always make sure not to miss the annual productions.

A company manned by local, professional artists who are dedicated to exploring and presenting fresh, new works, ShadowApe got its start in 1998 with its inaugural production, “The Turn of the Screw.” The company’s focus has always been to bring productions to the stage that emphasize collaboration among designers, actors, and creative individuals involved in the Indianapolis art community. Many of the theater’s performances combine live action with video, establishing a style of performance that’s uniquely its own.

Members of the company hope to challenge the intellect of their guests, as well as to surprise and inspire them. The actors bring decades of experience, both on Indianapolis stages as well as around the country, to the stage. The theatre company also makes good use of the many performing arts venues in Indianapolis. ShadowApe performances have been staged at Butler University, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Phoenix Theatre, and more.

Regardless of where the company performs, theatergoers can rest assured that the productions will satisfy. The Indianapolis alternative newspaper NUVO once described ShadowApe productions as “seasonal fruits,” saying “they come along briefly and just once a year, but when they do, the experience lingers on.”
