An Artistic Playground
Our goal is to create an artistic playground where artists and audiences can come together to produce and experience work that could not be done anywhere else.
Know produces premiere, visually inventive works that fully explore the essence of what live theatre can be. We are committed to producing works that contain voices that are traditionally underrepresented on stages regionally and nationally. As a company, our goal is gender parity in the playwrights we produce as well as in the makeup of our artistic teams.
Despite our small budget, we strive to produce the highest quality artistic work possible that engages audiences on visceral and intellectual levels.
The Jackson Street Market
In order to leverage our resources to the benefit of the larger community, Know Theatre launched the Jackson Street Market program in August 2010.
The Market creates opportunities for artists by providing them with logistical support, resources, space and eventually financial support for their own projects. Know Theatre does not create Market programming, but rather it seeks artist collaborators who have ideas, passion, and motivation but need the kind of support resources that Know Theatre has readily available.
