A New Regional Ensemble

Teatro Luna West

This Westcoast outpost started in 2014 as a radical experiment and new model in the American Theatre; an attempt to answer the needs we heard in cities all around the USA for liberated, intentional, brave spaces dedicated to artistic and physical exploration. We dreamed of centers for creativity that were free of the fear of failure, and equitably engineered for the organic development of Latinx and Womxn of Color artists, leaders, thinkers, and makers that value social justice and equity as an urgent need. We now call Los Angeles the home of our first Regional Ensemble serving the West Coast and working intimately with our Chicago Ensemble (founded in 2000) to create social change at home and around the world.    Find out more about who we are, and how to get involved.
