Since our founding in 2013, a core tenant of our mission statement has been, "... to bring diverse voices to a new generation of audiences." We have always created work with and for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) theatre artists and audiences.
And yet we also acknowledge that there is still a lot of work to be done, especially now as we rebuild our own Circles in Los Angeles and Syracuse. Our mission will continue to be giving voice to those who have for too long been voiceless for those who have for too long been waiting to see their stories represented on stage and screen. Diversity and inclusion remain at the center of our beliefs.
We have not and will never hesitate to say
BLACK LIVES MATTER
as we continue to strive to be the best allies and advocates for all BIPOC theatre artists and audiences possible.
