About TeAda Productions: Under the direction of Founding Artistic Director Leilani Chan, TeAda Productions exists to enrich the repertoire of contemporary works created and performed by people of color. Established in 1994, TeAda Productions is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to empower underserved communities through the development and presentation of interdisciplinary theatrical performance pieces by, for and about people of color. By developing ground-breaking, high caliber, cross-disciplinary performances that incorporate cultural forms such as dance and music with experimental theatrical and performance art practices, TeAda Productions expands awareness, builds communities and educates the general public about the issues facing underserved communities. TeAda Productions achieves this mission by producing and touring innovative performances, both locally and nationally, in traditional and non-traditional venues and through residencies offering community-based workshops and new work development labs. A pioneer in social justice theater, TeAda empowers these communities through the arts.
