MISSION STATEMENT n 1999, Barefoot Theatre Company was founded by a multicultural group of artists determined to produce vital, thought-provoking works, both new and existing. We embrace the importance of the collaborative process, nurture our ensemble commitment, and continue to learn from the younger generations we mentor.
Founded by actors for actors and reminiscent of The Group Theatre's uncompromising raw aesthetic with process and performance, the Barefoot Theatre Company focuses on presenting socially relevant works.
Associate, Family and Ensemble Members are dedicated to all aspects of collaboration from producing, behind the scenes work, designing, playwriting, acting and directing.
With several Ensemble Members residing in Los Angeles, Barefoot Theatre Company has branched out to bring their visceral style of acting, directing and productions to the West Coast.
OBJECTIVES 1) present a FREE Reading Series to the public while giving artists the opportunity to explore new works and develop working relationships.
2) develop new works by fostering emerging and established playwrights.
3) commit to the actor/director collaboration through workshops and presentations of lesser known works and revivals.
4) present at least two full productions a season.
5) expand an Educational Outreach program through-out the NYC school systems and offer free programming to Inner City High School Students.
Barefoot Theatre Company is NOT a producing house, we are a collaborative ensemble of actors, directors, playwrights and designers.
