Vision & Mission
"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"
At the Conscious Performers Collective, we offer a spiritually empowering alternative to the entertainment status quo, which we perceive to be a key player in the disconnection, anxiety, sickness and depression so profoundly present in today’s society. Our answer is to bring forth a message of enlightenment, empowerment and healing to all people by creating thought-provoking and life-affirming theatre and workshops which have the capacity to produce feelings of transcendence and oneness, as well as catalyze spiritual growth.
By focusing all of our content and form on carrying the human spirit forward and by producing feelings of yugen (a Japanese Buddhist term that roughly translates to: “An awareness of the profound and mysterious beauty of the Universe, which triggers an emotional response too deep for words”), we believe we can contribute to the evolution of consciousness through the creation and experience of art.
Moreover, we hold it to be true that offering people an expansion of consciousness, a personal experience of the deeper, transcendent dimension within all of us, is by far the greatest and most socially and environmentally impactful gift to give to all people. By working from the inside out - through personal growth, spiritual development and the bird’s eye perspective that naturally induced (ie. without the intake of substances) altered states of consciousness offer us, we give people a way to access a paradigm-breaking and deeply life-enriching realm within themselves. Having discovered their true nature, we hold the hope and conviction that people will go forth and use their own unique talents and gifts to aid in this global wave of the awakening of humanity as brothers and sisters, caretakers of planet Earth, and the highest truth of the oneness of all things.
Our work is open to all who are exploring the more existential questions of life. However, we make it one of our core objectives to invite and offer opportunity for non-traditional theatre audiences to experience a show. Often these audiences will come from the communities we are already working with. Specifically, we offer intensive workshop programs and production experiences to: people suffering from long-term physical or mental illness, people in recovery from substance abuse or eating disorders, children and teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds, immigrants, refugees, veterans, LGBTQ+ youth, and generally, people suffering from depression, anxiety and/or trauma.
As a non-profit organization, our efforts are fully focused on creating the greatest positive impact within the whole collective consciousness. By raising our voices, we intend to raise the Spirit of the people, thereby becoming a movement – a grassroots consciousness (r)evolution ignited by the mission of offering true prayerformance to the masses to heal, uplift, empower, unite and ascend.
