The Imaginists is a performance laboratory investigating the intersection of art and community. We explore the possibilities of theater, from new works & classics to bilingual & site-specific works, rooted in an ensemble approach. We engage new audience through community-based theater projects and unexpected collaborations inviting diversity and new artistic voices.
