Houses on the Moon Theater Company was founded in 2001 with a mission to dispel ignorance and isolation through the theatrical amplification of unheard voices. Through creative workshops, original performances, and post-show discussions, Houses on the Moon helps communities come together by making meaningful connections through the public sharing of their untold stories. All Houses projects are created through an extensive developmental and research process in collaboration with its community partners, which have included Amnesty International, the AFSC Immigrant Rights Program, Human Rights First and many others. At the core of our developmental process are interviews with real people about their lives, and a creative search for those human stories that yearn for a much wider hearing.
We believe in the power of theater to transform lives and instill empathy. Experiencing other people’s emotional lives and journeys through the lens of a character allows us to connect in a “safe” way and learn about ourselves and those around us.
