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.
It's #holiDONATE SEASON!
As we look forward to the new year, we're reflecting with some of our artists
about The Movement's impact on their lives:
“The Movement believed in me—unequivocally—from the very beginning. In the stories I wanted to tell and the ways I wanted to tell them. They said, “let’s do it, let’s make it happen,” when no one else would. The Movement has been championing me for fifteen years. And not just me...So many of us owe much of what we have now to the “little (now not so little) company in Harlem” that we joined all those years ago.”
Harrison David Rivers (Playwright, Board Member & TMTC Artist)
Right after college I was the intern for WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN and I’ve never looked back. I’ve learned so much and grown immensely as a director and leader in the field. If it wasn’t for the chance The Movement took on me then, I wouldn’t have the career I do today.
Ryan Dobrin (Director, TMTC Producing Artistic Leader)
15 years ago, I graduated from NYU Tisch undergrad as a hopeful and hungry young theatre director looking for an artistic home. TMTC was the first company who supported my artistic curiosities with resources and a community of global majority artists who believed in my ideas. Through workshops and productions, I formed my artistic voice. This voice is now directing and choreographing productions all over the world full time, and it all started with The Movement.
