MISSION STATEMENT:

TEATRON embodies the Jewish commitment to freedom through the visceral and imaginative act of theatre. Towards justice, memory, identity and transformation, TEATRON produces works that spotlight the struggles and challenges of society, elevating an array of voices, including historically disenfranchised and disempowered communities.

TEATRON values an intersection of spiritual communion and emotional connection for a diverse audience; knowing that sitting beside strangers and neighbors, sharing in an experience of compassion, and joining in moments of jubilation leads to more knowledge and empathy.

TEATRON 2021 Festival of Jewish Theater will be a hybrid form for our challenging times, which we will move to an even higher level in future years, when we meet once again on stage and in person.

TEATRON will continue after the 2021 Festival to be a source for thought-provoking, transformative theatre, developing and showcasing new works of social justice that originate from an essential sourcing of Jewish heritage, culture, history. Through think tanks, workshops, and labs in partnership with civil rights organizations we will seek to advance a new theatre of intersection, ultimately showcasing our collaborative efforts through the annual TEATRON - FESTIVAL OF JEWISH THEATRE.
