Welcome to the Circle Squared Collective
In collaboration with Syracuse University, "IMPACT: Past, Present, Future" is part historical docudrama, part satire, and part reckoning, as we examine the history of the university and its values as an institution.
This four-part series of short 30-40 minute virtual readings was created in part to help fund a scholarship to increase the representation of underrepresented students in the Department of Drama at Syracuse University.
The live readings are free to attend, but we ask that you consider making a donation to the Felix E. Cochren, Jr. Memorial Scholarship. 100% of the donations go to the scholarship.

Artistic Director Ricky Pak will be presenting two workshops for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival Region VII conference. The first of Devising Theatre for In-Person and Virtual experiences and the second on Building Allyship Across Identities.
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.
Economic times are tough, but if you are able, please consider making a donation to one of the many worthy organizations listed on this page:
