Collaborative Artists Bloc (CAB) brings dynamic and immersive performing arts experiences to communities of color. We explore cultural identity, promote social change, and build empathy to the full spectrum of our individual realities. We are dedicated to bringing together artists to collaborate and create content of human and artistic value for social change. Our goal is to create art that impacts and shapes the world around us.
CAB READING SERIES
Join us for our Los Angeles play readings, focused on exploring the work of new playwrights connected to our mission. We aim to discover new exciting pieces that speak to the social issues in our communities and history, and to have them told by talented artists with creative vision. We also use our reading series to discover stories for possible CAB productions. Do you have a play that you would like to submit for consideration four our Reading Series? Please send us an email with your work!
AMERICAN SAGA Project
American Saga is committed to telling the untold stories of America’s unheard voices. We are continually exploring narratives of diverse communities, including ethnic, racial, religious, sexual, and gender minorities. Just as our company embraces a multiplicity of points of view, we are also dedicated to telling these stories through a diversity of forms. The American Saga project encompasses and connects a range of media, including theater, film and television, music, digital media, and movement. American Saga is more than art: it’s a movement.
