In Support of Black Lives and Social Reform

Creating change within a country, a city, an industry takes more than words. Black lives matter and Artists at Play must take part in the rebuilding of a just, equitable, and inclusive society. But how does AAP fit in with all of this? What can we do? How do we hold ourselves and our community accountable?

Stay at Home with Artists at Play

Dear friends, supporters, and fellow artists,

We hope you’re all staying safe—and sane!—during these unprecedented times. Who would’ve thought you’d ever hear us say we don’t want you to come out to an Artists at Play show right now? Like all other organizations, we are trucking along, working (remotely) on how to make necessary adjustments while sticking to our original plans as best we can. As it is our foremost mission to highlight the work of Asian American theatre artists, AAP is actively looking for new ways to achieve those goals while adjusting to the new normal.

A Call for Action

Dear Los Angeles Times Entertainment and Arts Section,

The Los Angeles theater sector deserves to be represented by Black, Indigenous, People of Color critics in order to have fair and unbiased critique that is not filtered through a gaze that has supported white supremacy and Euro-centrism in the arts.
