Our Mission

  • Theatre Without Borders (TWB) was created as a global, all-volunteer, grass-roots, virtual community that shares information and builds connections between individuals and institutions interested in international theatre and performance exchange.
  • TWB was born out of a need to connect theatre artists around the world. 
  • TWB has advocated for theatre artists at all levels of practice who see themselves as members of a global community, as well as citizens of their respective nations and cultures.
  • TWB is not a funder, training organization, producer or presenter. 
  • We have planted seeds, nurtured them and then watched the plants grow and develop, thanks to our many partners.
  • You are welcome to use this site to search and discover a wide range of opportunities and resources.
