Breakout Rooms

Our Breakout Rooms represented the wide range of Theatres of Color from across the country. We feel so incredibly honored that we get to work with the theatres below.

Eagle Project is a professional performing arts company, fiscally sponsored by New York Live Arts, that behaves as an artistic laboratory by utilizing theater, music, dance, spoken word, and film to dissect the American identity, while using the Native American experience, both past and present, as the primary means for which to conduct its exploration. This mission is carried out through the development and staging of the works of Native American playwrights, educational outreach on Native American culture, and the production of the works of other American voices that are not frequently heard.

Golden Thread Productions, founded in 1996, is the first American theatre company devoted to the Middle East. We produce passionate and provocative plays from or about the Middle East that celebrate the multiplicity of its perspectives and identities. We are a developmental catalyst and vibrant artistic home to artists at various stages of their career. We bring the Middle East to the American stage, creating treasured cultural experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Hawaiian Theatre Program of the Department of Theatre and Dance, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa - The newest addition to our department is the Hawaiian Theatre program. The program includes courses on the history of theatre in Hawai‘i, the study and analysis of indigenous Hawaiian theatre, and training in both traditional and contemporary Hawaiian performance forms. Original productions reflect and honor the language, traditions, history and values of the Hawaiian community.

KC Melting Pot creates thought provoking, professional productions that reveal the rich contributions diverse Americans have made to the theatrical tradition in the United States.

 As the premier African American theater company in Kansas City, our primary goal is to explore theatrical works, old and new, that feature complex stories of African American life as a lens through which we realize our shared humanity. We seek to build coalitions and partnerships across the diversity spectrum that can create bridges that facilitate opportunities to understand and celebrate our similarities and our differences.

Teatro Luna collaboratively and organically creates original theatrical performances, digital media, and culture changing, action-driven encounters around the world that are responsive, empowering, and drive social change and transformation.

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.

The Sống Collective was founded by Vietnamese Theatre artists: David Huynh, Jonathan Castanien, and Carolina Do, in the spring of 2019 as a response to the United States’ sharp cuts to refugee resettlement in the face of a global refugee crisis. We are a Theatre collective that focuses on Asian and Asian American stories.The Sống Collective’s mission is to reclaim the Vietnamese American narrative by creating development and performance opportunities for emerging artists of color. We nurture a community of artists whose work explores questions of identity, race, intersectionality, immigration, and the refugee experience. We are dedicated to telling stories that dare to subvert preconceptions of Asian Americans.
