We are a Communitas Theater honoring the Chumash concept of "Liyikshup" — Community in Balance — a Social Theater transforming minds and hearts through storytelling, play performances, and song. All ages are welcome to this celebration of the creativity of the amateur.
Our mission is to develop an interdependent, consensual, and ecologically sensitive community.
We create an art-based civic dialogue through the power of Communitas Theater, which invites all residents to participate in the creativity of the arts.
With a focus on cultural tourism, we invite other communities to come and share this experience in story-telling social theater.
