SUPPORT BOLD THEATRE

Now, more than ever, Intiman Theatre is dedicated to telling stories on stage that reflect our community and help create connection and understanding.

As our country goes through an uncertain and divisive time, we are working to create more programming that strengthens our community. Theatre – the act of seeing stories live, together – allows that which has gone unspoken to be spoken. When we step into another person’s experience and consider their obstacles and not just our own we become more understanding and compassionate and find a clearer way to action.

We need more stories that have the power to move ideas forward and help us all change and grow. Every year Intiman shows up to tell this stories. In 2016, we brought new voices to the stage with co-curator Valerie Curtis-Newton by featuring almost 20 plays written by Black women through our productions of STICK FLY, WEDDING BAND and our Emerging Artist Program.

With community support, we also teamed up with Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors to bring real stories to the stage from community members who were impacted by State violence through POWER: FROM THE MOUTHS OF THE OCCUPIED. In 2017, we will continue to produce theatre that is relevant to our time and as diverse as the community in which we live.
