Walking Elephant Theatre Company
Walking Elephant Theatre Company’s mission is to bring documentary theatre projects and awakened acting to underserved and ethnically diverse youth in Sonoma County with the aim to build and heal communities.
Walking Elephant Theatre Company creates innovative live documentary pieces for social and ecological healing. The original productions are created from conversations and interviews between youth and their community. They walk a mile in the shoes of their neighbors and then create original documentary plays about the elephant in the room. We believe that hearing each other’s stories awakens our compassion. These projects help our culture shift from the paradigm of isolation, extraction, scarcity and violence, to the paradigm of connection, regeneration, abundance and peace.
As a nomadic theatre company, we go to where stories need to be told and heard. We create and perform in schools, theatres, homeless shelters, cafes, and front porches.
We are consistently going through an iterative process, meeting the needs of whatever “elephant in the room” a community would like to explore and transform.
