BMP is an organization that seeks to tell the stories of our time. With each new work we commission, we ask the key question "why this story, why now?" We process and digest hard truths about ourselves and the world through the works we bring to the stage. The nation is grappling with questions of how to rise up against systemic racism, brutality, and oppression.
We stand with our Black colleagues, friends, audiences, artists, and all those who have experienced the vicious history of racism in this country. We stand with those who give voice to the many whose voices have been taken far too soon. And we are looking inwards, asking how we can support those voices in the best way we know -- by giving them a platform through the art we create. While our stages are dark, we must use this moment to ensure that once they reopen, the answer to the question "why this story, why now" is made clear.
