About us

Counterweight Theatre Lab is a theatre group focused on intimate, honest, and experimental productions that ask important questions, stimulate the senses, and tell unique stories. We bend things wherever we can, be it in casting, staging, or other theatrical norms, and if you come to a Counterweight show, you’re guaranteed to be right up close to (or part of) the action and be confronted with characters and stories at the edge of human experience. We’re interested in states of exception, in dissent, in exile, in homecoming, and in the apocalyptic on every scale.

We’re committed to putting on high-quality theatre, and anybody in the community passionate about what’s happening on our stage can participate: Local actors are welcome to collaborate with us, designers can work with us, and those interested in working backstage are always encouraged. With your help, we’ll continue to promote theatre as one of the powerful art forms here in our city and tell lasting, meaningful, and thought-provoking stories.

We’re a proud partner of ARTx, which is a partnership between a few other performing arts companies in downtown Colorado Springs, including theatre, comedy, and improv. Go to artxcolorado.org for more information and to see upcoming events!

COMING UP


COMING UP


THE TEMPEST
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

AUGUST 9 - 18

A timely shipwreck brings the exiled magician Prospero face-to-face with his unjust past. Aided by the often invisible spirit, Ariel and deterred by the grotesque Caliban, will he use this most potent art to take his revenge or allow the whispers of forgiveness to reach his soul? The lines between storyteller and audience are blurred as this natural tension seeks to be undone. Join Counterweight in our intimate retelling of this magical revenge story.
