Sadie Berlin, Artistic Director
b current is a thirty year-old company that celebrates and nurtures Black and Brown artists. After years of phenomenal leadership, Catherine Hernandez left the company early in 2021 when Sadie Berlin became the new AD.
b current’s role is evolving along the times and as more institutions seek out content from Black and Brown artists, b current is finding a new opportunity to focus on work across a spectrum that joins community and radicalism. Our motto, “radicalism in content and form,” is a vow to support and foster Black and Brown artists who dwell in the margins, artists who create content the mainstream might shy away from.
Our anti-oppression training which has been all the rage for the last four years is now undergoing a recalibration; as EDI and anti-oppression training has become ubiquitous in the industry, we will be offering more advanced training and workshops in nascent disciplines within the performing arts, including land and cultural dramaturgy.
b current is embarks on a cautious expansion plan and will be announcing its new season early this Autumn.
