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.
