The Movement Theatre Company creates an artistic social movement by developing and producing new work by artists of color. Our work engages audiences in a rich theatrical dialogue, enlightens communities to the important issues affecting our world, and empowers artists to celebrate the many sides of their unique voice.
Though we're apart, we're orna-meant to be together!
2020 might have put live theatre on pause, but it couldn't stop our (social distanced) 2020 holiday photos!
Have a positive impact in this wild year and #holiDONATE to The Movement!
Regardless of the incredible challenges globally, we're still here for our artists and community. This year, many Black artists' experiences with predominantly white institutions have finally been heard on a broader scale. Though the specifics of the stories may have been surprising, the situations weren't. We have experienced oppressive behaviors and have heard from our artists about their experiences. The reckoning happening in the American theatre has made it abundantly clear that there are multitudes of Black and brown artists who want and deserve to share in our expansive and inclusive vision for the American theatre. Our artists need more than a haven to work alongside a leadership team of color; they need a theatre company engaging in active examination and transformative action.
Moving forward we’re asking, “How do we heal our artists and ourselves from the trauma of being tokenized by our field? How do we steer clear of enacting the same harm on each other?”
Support our recommitment to increase The Movement’s capacity to better fund and support our artists. We know many of us are in different places financially, but there are many ways to give. In a time where much attention is paid to white-led theaters looking to atone, we ask you to turn your attention to us. Give us a shoutout on FB, IG, and Twitter and share our campaign in the coming months! If you are financially able to donate, you can donate online or via check. In any form, your support will bolster our ability to uplift Black and brown voices essential to the sustainability of our world in 2021 and beyond.
