Keeping Our Promise - Connecting Community Through Live Performance
Red Earth Theatre, like every performing arts organization, group, individual in the USA and indeed the world, has been saddened, horrified, and ultimately challenged by these unprecedented times.
After cancelling (with later projected rescheduling dates) two productions, and ceasing (at least for now) live theatre at Tlaquepaque, we are bringing our creativity and love of storytelling through theatre to the virtual/digital medium.
Our mission remains as it has always been. Red Earth Theatre provides a platform to inspire and nurture many voices through live performance, and encourages dialogue exploring the human experience in our diverse communities.
Now more than ever those voices are needed to explore and share the current experience. Our community includes the actors, writers, technical folks and others with whom we create and you the audience whose presence nurtures the creative impulse.
We are not disappearing and are developing online means to say in touch and bring the performing arts to you. It is in times of anxiety and uncertainty we need to come together, with the energy of the arts to reach our spirit and calm the emotional turmoil more than ever. As a creative organization we can do it virtually.
We can’t come to you live – real people in real space in real time – at least for the foreseeable future, but we are bringing you performances, both past and present through our Red Earth Theatre YouTube Channel, Facebook and who knows where else!
We know that many of you are struggling with the upheavals in your life – separation from family and friends, uncertain livelihoods and the accompanying emotional roller-coaster. We know that creativity and sharing community can provide solace, reprieve and often healing.
Finally, be your own performer – write poems, sing songs, dance. Keep your heart open and fear at bay. The community exists even when you can’t sit beside it in front of a stage – it is all around you.
