Flat Earth Theatre's Response: BLACK LIVES MATTER

A STATEMENT FROM FLAT EARTH THEATRE ON THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD, AND THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT:

We wholly condemn the violence perpetrated against Black people by police all over this country. We support the protest efforts and the calls for change, and we stand with the communities seeking justice for lost Black lives. We reject the system of institutionalized racism that endangers and disenfranchises People of Color and instills every power structure in the country with anti-Blackness, Native erasure, and white supremacy. We are also aware that this same racist system serves our mostly white company and we benefit from it, as individuals and as a group. We acknowledge that there are times we have failed to live up to our own standards of what equality and diversity means.

As artists and activists we have a duty to bring our values into our work, onto our stages, and out into the community. We do not want to make a statement of support and then carry on as before; we know we must do better. We know that to create change we must take action. Flat Earth Theatre is a non-hierarchical, egalitarian collective of theatre makers. Because of that, before we say or do anything, we discuss our company's words and actions at great length. The more important the issue, the longer the conversation.

The Company Members of Flat Earth Theatre are taking a moment to collectively plan what concrete actions we as a company will commit to taking, now and going forward, to help dismantle systemic racism in our community. We will be meeting (virtually) and discussing this over the next two weeks so that we can make an honest, substantial, and actionable pledge to you, our community, by June 18th.

However, we understand the crisis is more immediate and all action cannot wait until then – the violence is happening now. In the meantime, the members of Flat Earth Theatre will be making a group donation to BLM, and we would encourage anyone who was planning to contribute to Flat Earth to consider supporting BLM or any of their community support networks or local bail funds (links below) this time.

For now, we say collectively: Black Lives Matter.
