We Players presents site-integrated performance events that transform public spaces into realms of participatory theater. We bring communities together, reclaiming local spaces for public discourse and civic celebration through art. Extending the transformative powers of performance beyond the stage, we invite our collaborators and audience to engage fully and awaken to the spectacular world around us.

PAST


We Players is a Bay Area-based arts nonprofit that was founded in 2000 at Stanford University by Ava Roy. We create immersive artistic experiences that raise awareness of our immediate physical environments and strengthen our understanding of and relationship with our project sites and related environmental, social, and political issues. All of our programs are site-integrated and intrinsically interactive.

Our company’s site-integrated focus and commitment to engage with history and ecology, build community, and use art to foster a personal connection with place has led to unprecedented partnerships with the National Park Service and California State Parks. We produce a variety of performance and community engagement programs that are accessible to the diverse population of regular park visitors, and also draw local visitors to park sites specifically to experience our work.

We are committed to keeping both our ticket prices affordable and our performances extraordinary. To do this, we need to supplement our box office income through sponsorship and individual giving.  We Players patrons are our triumphant heroes who listen, advise and cheer us on!
