Our Mission

We aim to challenge society’s persisting discrimination with regard to gender and sexuality. We are calling for people to recognize that while progress has been made, gender inequalities persist. Even less equal are those whose sexuality does not fit into the typical sexual paradigm. Our productions focus on creating theatre in a recognizable environment, forcing audiences to see the stereotypes they’ve come to accept, and embolden them to challenge those stereotypes. Recognize Theatre seeks to highlight how the “feminine” still lacks societal value, whether feminine traits are embodied in a man or a woman.
