We co-create meaningful arts experiences through bold theater, education, & community initiatives.
We're not sure who started the conversation, but as legend has it, in the early days, our co-founders were struggling to name our organization.
They had explored a wealth of possibilities, but nothing was really striking them. Then, one day, they were having a rather philosophical conversation about geography and fate.

Randomly, Becky turned to Petra and asked "Hey...what's the Swedish word for lightning?"
"BLIXT" Petra answered.
