CIVIL RESOURCES​

LIVES

Just the phrase does not suffice.

We want real change.

 

Over the years, the company has produced many white-centric performances. This is something we cannot take back. By recognizing our past, we roll on into the future and take action. REV recognizes while moving forward, casting must actively include

BIPOC and LGBTQ+ performers. 

 

Colorblind casting is not the answer. REV is working to create a truly inclusive space, making no room for conscious or subconcious white-supremacy. From now on, we must maintain this mindset and continue the fight for civil equity. 

 

It is important for audiences and members of our education and outreach programs to see diversity onstage. American Theatre is inherently racist. It is so deep-rooted in the exclusion and mockery of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color that it is hard see these roots past the wonderful pieces created by BIPOC writers, choreographers, musicians, et cetera. REV has been donating, educating ourselves and others online, and petitioning to our local government. Join us as we try to ignite change.

- with love, REV Theatre Company
