La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club
Your support will help us La MaMa present our 56th Season of programming that is culturally diverse and genre-defying.

Our 56th Season will feature artists who question social mores and confront everyday injustices.

Safe Harbors Indigenous Collective
Safe Harbors Indigenous Collective, headed by Murielle Borst-Tarrant, is dedicated to the promotion of indigenous art and culture, while creating accessibility to the arts for high need and underserved communities. In residence at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, Safe Harbors creates a new paradigm in the presentation of Indigenous arts and culture within the broader American theatre by combating stereotypes and supporting vibrant Native communities. The Collective strives to develop ongoing dialogue with policymakers about how cultural and socioeconomic issues can be approached through theatrical performances, panel discussions, and cultural events. The Collective seeks to build an understanding of Indigenous methodologies and cosmologies that in turn will support the development of legal constructs for arts building and production. The Collective functions on a grassroots level within local Indigenous arts communities, as well as nationally and internationally through arts presentation and education.

The Trojan Women Project sends artists from La MaMa to work with artists in communities worldwide who have a desire to use theatre as a means for addressing the issues and themes presented in The Trojan Women. The project uses the music and staging of La MaMa's groundbreaking 1974 production of The Trojan Women, composed by Elizabeth Swados, directed by Andrei Serban, performed by the Great Jones Rep and produced by Ellen Stewart.

Bring Back BFT
Help La MaMa present the US premiere of BURNING DOOR, the latest in evocative, political drama from Belarus Free Theatre.
Belarus Free Theatre is one of the leading refugee-led theatre companies in the UK and the only theatre in Europe banned by its government on political grounds. BURNING DOORS draws on the company’s own experience of political oppression and continues their campaign to stand up for artistic freedom and human rights across the globe. Based on the real-life stories of iconoclastic Russian performance artist Petr Pavlensky, incarcerated Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov (currently serving a 20-year prison sentence in Russia) and Pussy Riot's Maria Alyokhina (who will be making her New York stage debut at La MaMa) to shine a light on total suppression of artistic freedoms.
