we make

new work


In Tandem Arts advances the performing arts by generating new narratives for a new era of performance. Drawing on storytelling  we foster collaboration through workshops & experimentation. We create interactive spaces, participatory events, & interdisciplinary works. We do this by working with & within communities, schools, & partnering organizations.



The workshops we facilitate are for crews of all ages. This is where we build work together. This is how we generate new works though collective vision!



We love learning together, collaborating, and team-building. Bring us to your school, cultural institution, or faith community for a residency.



The work can come to you. Bring us to your site of work, organization, or hometown to build a team and create a participatory performance.



We are a community-based cultural organization. We bring people together for new experiences and then like to make a big spectacle of it!  


HOP IN. The performing arts are A joyful vehicle to propel into spaces of deep collaboration and therefore powerful connections. We are participatory. We are interdisciplinary.

what we OFFER

programs & workshops

With a hands-on approach, ITA uses storytelling & the performing arts to co-create with & within community. We do not create art that sets us apart ─ we do not create art where the most talented shine. We create art that galvanizes collective vision. Put simply … we make art that build connections! Our workshops are designed to be inclusive of learners of all ages & newcomers to the arts. 

Productions & Events

Prioritizing participatory events, ITA facilitates the creation of original works. We do not gather in traditional performing arts models of crowds and spectacle. We gather to see each other. Bolstering community with powerful combinations of storytelling, music, performing and visual arts, our teaching artists are problem-solvers that work with available resources to realize meaningful productions.

Community-Based Projects

In this new reality, where technology mediates and separates our social lives more than ever, ITA creates supported spaces for collective imagining. These spaces are in schools, parks, neighborhoods, and public institutions ─ shared spaces to serve as creative common grounds. We invite communities to use our services to enhance existing curriculum, programming, festivals, or events.
