Alive Theatre was co-founded by Jeremy Aluma & Danielle Dauphinee in late 2007 with considerable help from their friends and board members. They were an itinerant company throughout their entire existence, doing site specific work at such venues as the Museum of Latin American Art, Queen Mary, The Expo, a real life river boat, and the Downtown Public Library among many others.  The theatre produced three new works play festivals over the years, premiering over 30 new plays from some very talented local, national and international playwrights.  The company produced 5-6 productions a year from 2008-2012 and was the first home to some very successful branch out companies such as Four Clowns and Post Mortem Movement Theatre. David Nichols of LA Times called the company "well worth watching" and they were named one of LA Weekly's 'Best Theatre's of the Decade'.  The merger between Alive and Garage in 2013 was a no-brainer and has been a dream come true for both bands of theatrical warriors ever since.
