Black Lives Matter.
These are only a few of the names. Too many names. Too many lives taken.
We stand together—with Black colleagues, artists, partners, friends, fellow citizens.
We stand in sorrow, in fear, in anger. We stand to speak against a system of racism, to examine our past, to question our present. We stand to listen.
Our fervent hope is that theatre can help us know each other. On stage and—importantly—beyond, we share joys, hopes, sorrows, fear, and anger. And we know we need to do more.
What does true change look like?
What can true equality look like?
What would love look like?
“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”
