20th Anniversary Celebration

In 2012, SITI Company entered our 20th year as a nonprofit theater company. In 1992, SITI Company was founded under the guiding mission of redefining and revitalizing contemporary theater in the United States through an emphasis on international cultural exchange and collaboration.  Now, twenty years later, this ensemble of seventeen artists is still united around the same vision.


On Saturday, May 11th, SITI Company’s anniversary season culminated in a 20th Anniversary Celebration & JAM.  This event allowed us to honor 20 individuals whose unwavering support, energetic spirit, and trustworthy guidance helped us reach this seminal milestone.  Additionally, we recently announced that in Fall 2013 will take our education efforts to the next level by adding a year round Conservatory program in New York City.  A portion of the proceeds from this event will directly support this new initiative. 

The 20th Anniversary Celebration & JAM was housed entirely within the BAM Fisher (321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn), a new facility located around the corner from BAM’s Peter Jay Sharp Building.
