we are


We’re making it up and making art.

In 2019, we formed as an arts collective to make stuff that we think is cool.

things we’ve made so far include:

  • A party
  • A bilingual immersive experience
  • A brand new play
  • A couple of pandemic-proof online shenanigans

At MAGNA, we make art in a whole bunch of different ways.

We get excited about cross-genre mash-ups, trying stuff out and challenging artistic norms.

But mostly what we like is people.
Wanna work with us?
