Welcome to Open Circle Theatre

“He drew a circle to shut us out
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout;
But love and I had the wit to win,
We drew a Circle that took him in.”

A STATEMENT FROM OPEN CIRCLE THEATRE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, ADVISORY COMPANY, AND ARTISTS

Open Circle Theatre acknowledges it has benefited from the historically centered focus of the disability rights community, the theater community, and the imbalance of influence accompanying that privilege. Here, and in all our work, we reaffirm our commitment to Anti-racist practices and policies. We join others around the world in strongly supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement and will strengthen our organization with members who bring lived experience of being, D/disabled, D/deaf, BIPOC, Women, and those who are LGBTQIAplus.

We at Open Circle are committed to Disability justice and to a vibrant, radically-inclusive inter-sectional space.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Open Circle acknowledges this theater and its theater spaces stand on occupied, unceded territory: the ancestral homeland of the NACOTCHTANK, whose descendants belong to the Piscataway peoples.
