Confrontation Theatre’s mission is to provoke all-inclusive audiences through excellent, affordable theatre as we confront the unique experiences and perspective of the Black diaspora by focusing on and supporting works by artists of African descent.
With a slew of theatre companies in the Portland metropolitan area, it’s easy to assume there is an adequate proportion of diversity within this vibrant arts hub. Although there are dozens of companies here, only THREE were founded and/or managed by Afro-Americans, Blacks or Africans. With this reality, it’s imperative another company founded and managed by Black women and men gives rise to not only entertain, confront and enlighten audiences but also create more opportunities for Black artists to display and develop their share and share their authentic stories unapologetically.
