Our 20th Anniversary Season
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. We invite you to join us as a supporter during this special year.
Regardless of where or how, we hope that our work has touched you in some way this year. If it has, please consider making a gift in support of our 20th Anniversary season.
Each year, SITI hosts a benefit gala as a gathering point for our New York community and the centerpiece of our yearly fundraising. Fueled by bold productions and strong martinis, the Company and our supporters celebrate another year of SITI as well as the work of our accomplished honorees. This spring the event will focus on the Company’s accomplishments over the past 20 years and honor 20 individuals who have contributed to our success. Join us on May 11 at the BAM Fisher.

“I’d like to think that the dwindling number of Americans who still distinguishes serious theater from entertainment might gather around Anne Bogart to form a protectorate for her work. As Peter Brook has his Bouffes du Nord and International Center of Theatre Research in Paris, as Mnouchkine has her Cartoucherie as home to her Theatre du Soleil, also in Paris, as Suzuki has his mountainside development and performance center at Toga, as Wilson may someday have a similarly dedicated site at Watermill, Bogart needs a sanctuary.” —Porter Anderson, CNN
