OUR MISSION is to constantly create spontaneous, hilarious and provocative work, driven by fearless and innovative ensembles; work that directly reflects the gender, age, race, sexuality, and politics, of our participants.
Over the past 6 years we have engaged hundreds of artists in the Bay Area to produce some great art! The connection and joy that is experienced by everyone involved has spawned new theater companies and numerous collaborations. Keep an eye on us and please join us at our next event.
AMIOSWEST WAS FOUNDED in 2012 as the West Coast outpost of Amios. Amios (Art and Music in our Souls) was founded in 2009 by alumni of the National Theatre Conservatory. Since its inception Amios has worked with over 500 artists to produce more than 300 original short, one-act and full-length plays in New York City, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles.
