Danger and Boat

Tane Danger and Brandon Boat have been collaborating for a number of years on a variety of projects both grand and small.


Tane S. Danger has performed, taught, and directed improv theater since 2003. In 2011, he developed a show (alongside Brandon Boat) that brought his two passions together. The result is The Theater of Public Policy (www.t2p2.net).

 In 2014, Tane won a fellowship from the St. Paul-based Bush Foundation. The Bush Fellowship helped Tane earn a Master’s of Public Policy from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. In a self-designed concentration, Tane looked at how improv theater could inform and enhance work in the public sphere.  

In addition to performing and directing, Tane regularly gives keynote talks and leads workshops. He uses improv as a way to get leaders to think and practice communication, collaboration, and creativity.


After graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2008, Brandon Boat hopped on a jet to South Korea where he taught ELL at a middle school in Busan. Upon returning to America in 2009, he joined AmeriCorps and served with CommonBond Communities. There he assisted residents of affordable housing by providing social services and responsive youth programming.

When his service term finished, he co-developed The Theater of Public of Policy with Tane Danger with whom he later formed Danger Boat Productions LLC. In that time since, he was awarded an Artist Residency at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and continues to work on fun projects with organizations around the state.

In his spare time he enjoys home brewing and traveling to exotic locales.
