Founding and Producing Artistic Director Ty Hallmark and Managing Director Ivana (Tai) Alexander said in a statement: “We are honored to be the 2019 recipient of the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company. This represents the recognition of our commitment to illuminating unheard voices and unseen spaces in our community and in our world. We are especially grateful to our wonderful partners at Joe's Movement Emporium for their constancy and support from day one. Our neighborhood community in Mount Rainier, the Gateway Arts District, and Hyattsville have welcomed and embraced our company, mission, and ethos. We look forward to working together as we spark urgent, meaningful, and thoughtful conversations through art and community service for years to come.”
