of Boone NC
The mission of In/Visible Theatre of Boone is to give voice to unheard voices through work that challenges audiences to experience the world in new ways. Through education, social engagement, and innovative artistic practices, they encourage participants to try on new perspectives that access deeper truths and create a more engaged, empathetic, introspective populace.
We make meaningful, beautiful, and socially relevant theatre for the permanent and temporary residents of our dynamic mountain town, and to tour outside our region.
We operate under the philosophy that great art is in service to others, and we recognize that to engage audiences in whole and moving theatre, all aspects of production--from the scripts we choose to the acting we present--must be of equally high quality.
OUR PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
We eschew the meaningless barrage of sensation and embrace theatre’s multivalent and sophisticated powers of affecting individual and community characters, its ability to help all of us—audience and artists alike—perform that daunting task of “forging in the smithies of our souls the uncreated conscience of our race.”
We see a world careening recklessly towards an uncertain future in pursuit of quickness and ease. In/Visible reminds our community of the virtues of slowing down. We embrace a slower, more complex way of looking at the world that offers a deep experience to be digested, eschewing the “bombardment of sensation” that permeates our culture.
