Black Power Theatre is a contemporary cultural arts center, located in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The theater is focused on the artistic talents of the African diaspora. Black Power Theatre provides a place where African, Caribbean and Black-American representation is not only celebrated, but cultivated.
We are proud to open our doors in one of the first locations of the African diaspora. A place where rich culture is already celebrated. This New Black Arts Movement is focused on supporting the creative expression of emerging: playwrights, actors, artists, poets, photographers and writers.
The theater is a major force in re-establishing the artistic pride historically marginalized and disenfranchised in the Arts.
Black Power Theatre has an international presence...The importance of establishing a distinct voice in the Arts today, is understanding that our talents and artistic creativity must be expressed and celebrated on a international level. As an international theater company, we ensure that our productions, showcase art galleries and even our poetry slams are exhibited not only in the Caribbean but Black Power Theatre has upcoming events in Africa, America and Italy.
Coming Soon...Black Power Theatre will present its first international production:
"Le Stagioni Del Corpo" at Castellar Ponzano in Northern Italy.
*Our first installment of many - where we showcase Black talent on an international level!*
