Vision

OUR GOALs

Our main goal is to reframe how theatre is both created and presented.

 

In addition, we seek to: 

 

  • Devise new ways to tell well-known stories 

  • Produce timely and critically relevant material

  • Develop new and exciting approaches to how we can positively impact our communities and help advocate for those in need

  • Support diversity in leadership

  • Initiate and execute mechanisms of sustainability to combat the devastation of climate change and its repercussions

  • Address challenges with integrity and authenticity

  • Create multiple streams of income to ensure continuous cash flow

  • Manage our efforts, to the best of our abilities, in an organized approach with an emphasis on physical and mental well-being

 

We hope to explore freedom of thought, expression and creativity while encouraging artists to take calculated risks; celebrating the uniqueness within and using it to fuel organic, honest choices in a supportive, team-player environment. 

 

It's vitally important that we also honor the land that enables us to do what we do while making responsible choices to respect and protect it for future generations to keep developing and finding more new ways of story-telling.

 

Lofty? YES. Intellectually stimulating? YES

Entertaining? YES. Impossible? NO

Necessary? ABSOLUTELY.

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

At Theatremakers, we acknowledge the

institutional oppression and trauma that

marginalized communities face.

 

As allies and change-makers, we actively seek to advocate for organizations that support communities of color, indigenous communities, communities with disabilities, LGBTQ+ communities, communities of varying religious beliefs and those with

intersectional identities.

 

Our diversity is our strength; built on

a foundation of kindness, patience

and understanding.

land acknowledgement

SOFL Theatremakers recognizes and acknowledges that the lands on which we are able to live and work once belonged to the indigenous tribes of the Jeaga, Ais, Taino, Tequesta and now Seminole people.

 

Generations of these indigenous people and tribes have resided on these lands for over 10,000 years. These lands and waterways were central to their creation stories and there are sacred sites located near and around

these lands that carry those stories, including

those for survival and identity. 

 

With every show we produce, every rehearsal we have, every class we teach and every project we choose to create; we honor these indigenous people, their lands, their ancestors, future generations, culture, harvest, language, poetry and living songs.

 

We hereby state our commitment

to respect and protect their legacy.

COMPANY MESSAGE

NOW is the time for all theatre makers to challenge our precedents. If theatre is a reflection of the world we live in, it’s also a reflection of the world we hope to live in.

 

It’s a space of potential and 

possibility where you can stand for something bigger than yourself.

 

With these guiding principles,

Theatremakers is intentional about

art, advocacy and impact.
