One year ago today, George Floyd was murdered. He is one of many Black people who have been brutalized as a result of a vicious white supremacist system. We commit to rooting out white supremacy in ourselves, in our theater, and in our communities. We assert unequivocally Black Lives Matter.
Theater in Asylum (TIA) is a New York-based theater company founded in 2010 to challenge and empower our community. TIA joyfully pursues a rigorous research and an ensemble-driven approach to theater-making. We create performances to investigate our past, interpret our present, and imagine our future. We prize space to process, space to question—asylum—for ourselves and our community.
