Mission

Producing latino voices since 1966

 

OUR MISSION

INTAR, one of the United States’ longest running Latino theater producing in English, works to:

  • Nurture the professional development of Latino theater artists.
  • Produce bold, innovative, artistically significant plays that reflect diverse perspectives.
  • Make accessible the diversity inherent in America’s cultural heritage.

INTAR: International Arts Relations, Inc.  is an organization committed to the development of “theater arts without borders.” Over the past four decades, INTAR has produced classics, Latino adaptations of classics, cabarets, and 70 world premieres of plays written by Latino-Americans, including 2005 Oscar nominee Jose Rivera and Pulitzer Prize recipient Nilo Cruz.

To date, the theatre has commissioned, developed, and produced works by more than 175 Latino writers, composers, and choreographers. It has assisted hundreds of Latino playwrights, directors, and actors in obtaining their first professional theater credits, union memberships, and reviews in English-language media. “There’s scarcely a Latino artist in America who hasn’t been supported or trained or produced by INTAR,” according to The New York Times.
