Exposed Brick Theatre
Our Mission is to tell untold stories, center omitted narratives and create art at the intersection of identities.
Our Vision is to live in an empathetic world where people and their stories are valued. We believe that telling untold stories will make the world more just. When silenced narratives are shared, authentically and truthfully, and aren’t shaped by a dominant cultural lens, empathy, understanding and truth prevail.
Our Work elevates omitted narratives and flips the script on what work is valued. We live in a world where certain narratives are silenced in order to maintain existing power dynamics. Producing work that centers the voices of BIPOC artists and communities increases accessibility and shifts the culture of theater, challenging narratives that have traditionally been privileged. More perspectives are empowered; more hidden narratives emerge, shaping new and equitable realities. We want a revolution of what stories and whose voices are amplified in theater.
Your donation will support the Through Our Eyes project. We commissioned eight incredible playwrights to write short plays about the multiple pandemics experienced in 2020., and then spent this year developing and sharing the plays through virtual readings. We are so excited to finally return to live plays in 2022, and your generosity will support full productions for these new plays!
THANK YOU for supporting our mission, vision & work!
