    Azuka Theatre Collective
    Azuka Theatre Collective’s goal is to produce theatrical works that are both visceral and thought provoking. Azuka is dedicated to producing contemporary/non-traditional works as well as revisiting classic plays with a new perspective. We are committed to creating/developing culturally inclusive text-based work and believe that theatre arts should go beyond theatrical production by participating in the cultural growth of our surrounding communities.
    The word "Azuka" is a West African word meaning "strong foundation", but our company is the namesake of a girl named Jane Azuka. Azuka Theatre Collective is inspired by the idea that more involvement in theatre arts will naturally lend itself to involvement in the community. Our goal is to encourage new productions for the twenty-first century that allow many voices and philosophies to be encountered at once. We believe theatre cannot be created in a vacuum of homogeny.
