Et Alia Theater is a NYC based theater company founded and led by international women. We bring together an unfamiliar combination of foreign and immigrant voices and offer them a space to explore and interchange their multicultural perspectives in the safety of a women-led environment.
Et Alia is Latin for ‘And Other’: we create art for the other, by the other, and about the other. We use our art to expose the obstacles experienced by people adapting to a new environment, and by breaking the default narrative that sees us as the ‘other’, we make the ‘out of place’ a place.
We believe the dialogue with different cultures and the curiosity towards the unfamiliar pushes us to revisit and question what was once familiar, which then creates new possibilities of change. Investigating the other is therefore investigating oneself.
