About Us

Ubuntu Theater Project's mission is to create exquisite theatrical experiences that inspire compassion.

Ubuntu is a Zulu proverb that means "I am because we are" and "I am a person through other people. My humanity is tied to yours." Ubuntu Theater Project tells stories that matter and creates theatrical performances and trainings that intentionally bring diverse participants together.

Founded in Oakland, CA in 2012, Ubuntu Theater Project's core offering is year-round professional theater that grapples with issues that traditionally polarize us, in an effort to uplift the human condition and build empathy across difference.

Ubuntu Theater Project returns from its award-winning and ambitious inaugural 2016 Season and seeks to grow the organization and become a nationally recognized, marquee theater based in Oakland, CA.
