Founded in 1997, Theater Mitu is committed to challenging the parameters of theater research and practice. The Company's work is situated in the tension between acting and performance, theatrical design and installation, and multi-media and interactive technology. Their practice investigates trans-global performance; interdisciplinary collaborative models; the performativity of non-violence; the geopolitics of objects; contemporary mythology; artist training, ritual and the sacred. Its considerable body of work has taken on a variety of forms: developmental and production work with some of the world’s leading theatrical innovators, research and pedagogical work with renowned universities and conservatories, engagement with non-theatrical communities, and international trainings and research initiatives with leaders in the field.

Theater Mitu has diligently continued various global research and training initiatives towards the development and articulation of the Company’s training methodology known as WHOLE THEATER. Most recent research and training initiatives have traveled the Company to Bali, Chile, Djibouti, Egypt, India, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Singapore, Sudan, UAE and Yemen. This has led to intensive training sessions and collaborations with some of these countries’ most important artists, teachers and masters.
