Griot Theatre
In Residence at A Noise Within

Griot Theatre is excited to announce that we will be in residency at A Noise Within, to continue our New Voices Festival, exploring new work by women, artists of color, and those with physical disabilities. A Noise Within is "one of the nation's premier classical repertory companies", according to The Huffington Post., and we are thrilled to partner with ANW as they seek to assure their work reflects the broader community they serve.

Robyn and Ajay are about to meet the woman who will act as a surrogate to birth their child. These Americans find themselves confiding in the anonymous beings on the other end of their phone lines rather than in each other; computer technicians, fast food order takers and phone operators whose work has been outsourced to another country become the refuge they can’t be for each other right now.

When racism and oppression manifest in a scary physical form, a social media influencer and a boots-on-the-ground activist form a complex bond to help each other survive this contagious condition.

In Residence at the Getty Villa

Griot Theatre participated in The Getty Villa's Theatre Lab from April 4-17, 2016.  The two week residency culminated in 4 public performances. Working from the original text of Philoctetes by Sophocles, the work would become The Archer from Malis - going on to a full production in Hollywood.
