WHO WE ARE

ImaginAction Theater Inc. is born from the work and vision of the founder Hector Aristizabal. It is a non-profit theatre arts organization based in Los Angeles, California. 

It brought its unique mix of theatre arts and community engagement all around the globe: Colombia, Guatemala, India, China, Nepal, Palestine, Israel, Turkey, Syria, Northern Ireland, England, The Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Euskadi, Norway, Haiti, India, Denmark, Belgium, France, Austria, Georgia, Croatia, Ukraine, Sudan, Senegal, Brasil, Canada, USA, El Salvador, Cuba, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Venezuela, Argentina, Mexico, Egipto, South Africa, Germany, Portugal, Afghanistan. 

ImaginAction today is a community of socially engaged artists and facilitators. We come from diverse cultures, speak many languages, and specialize in a wide range of methods and skills. We are committed to using our talents for community healing, social and environmental justice and believe that tapping into Imagination leads to transformative action.

WHAT WE DO

In times of incertitude and disruption, we want to move our imagining into acting, seeing the crisis as an opportunity momentum. More than ever, we need to gather across borders, open our minds, open our hearts, listen to our body and Earth, open our will and face the challenges of our times.

Our intention is offering ImaginAction as a virtual and real space of learning and exchange for artists, activists, facilitators from all over the world. We want to intentionally participate in what Joanna Macy calls the Great Turning, for the regeneration of our world and life-sustaining human culture

Our practices are inspired by Theatre of the Oppressed, Dragon Dreaming, Social Presencing Theatre, The Work That Reconnects, Drama Therapy, Emphatic Listening and more…

“Our most basic human right is, to imagine, to dream”

Hector Artistizabal, Founder
