What is a “Theatre Mine?”

We conceived of The Theatre Mine shortly after we said goodbye to Mollie Mook-Fiddler back in 2016. As an organization, we exist to advance joyful creative collaboration in Silverton and beyond by partnering with professional, amateur and aspiring artists, local businesses, other arts organizations. We seek to engage, enrich, and inspire through theatrical exploration and public presentations, especially of new work.

From a poetic point of view, rather than a site for extracting resources, this “Mine” is an incubatory space within which theatrical ideas can be mined, dreamed, and brought forth. The Theatre Mine’s name also points to both the literal and figurative practices of openly curious investigations of who we are personally and collectively.

In The Theatre Mine we don’t just dig to find, we also dig just to dig. We do this digging with others, and this endeavoring is fun even if nothing gets found. But we do find things. And we build upon them, and they inspire us to dig further, and eventually we share and perform our findings. The Silverton Theater Mine is a container for this kind of creative, collaborative artistic activity on multiple levels.
