Art2Action creates, develops, produces and tours original contemporary theatre and performance. These are some of our original works.
Eleven Reflections on September
A Multimedia Performance / Digital Film
A Spoken Word & multimedia performance on Arab American experience, Wars on/of Terror, and “the constant, quiet rain of death amidst beauty” that each autumn brings in a post-9/11 world.
Sokwe: Look Human
An Immersive Multimedia Performance
Sokwe: Look Human transports participants to a world of chimpanzees and conservation, asking us to examine what it means to be human, to appear human, to make a humanistic choice… and what it means to face extinction.
A Transdisciplinary Theatre Project
The journey of a drone pilot leads to an encounter with survivors of U.S. drone strikes—an encounter of worlds, in which the “drone” in global music forms a sonic backdrop to high-tech militarization.
Outside the Circle
A play by Andrea Assaf & Samuel Valdez
A play about unrequited love, and what happens to love when we internalize society’s phobias. Parallel, interweaving tales reveal the illusions of normalcy, and the liberation possible when choosing life…outside the circle.
In addition to creating A2A productions, we also commission and support the development of new work by artists we believe in, and whose work is aligned with our mission. Here are a few of the projects we support.
At Water's Edge / Al filo del agua
By Celeste Miller & Dora Arreola
A bilingual dance / physical theatre work exploring the shifting of borders / edges / filos, the natural and political forces that shape them, and women who resist.
Five Black Women
By Andresia Moseley
A one-woman show about religion and what happens when it fades, sexuality and what happens when it is explored, esteem and what happens when you risk everything to get it.
Migration Play Cycle
By Heather Raffo
An ever-expanding narrative following migration and the global economy as we approach the moment when all populations will have to confront not only global migration, but their own.
