About Teatro del Corazón | Heart Theatre
We believe that getting Teatro del Corazón | Heart Theatre in front of as many people as possible can help inspire and mobilize people to make a change, take action, love more, and hate less. And we want to help as many people as possible lead healthier lives.
We are the first-of-its-kind center for art, and we are a digitally-native and in-person hybrid production performing arts company. We produce existing works that uplift humanity while at the same time commissioning new pieces from established and contemporary artists.
While we will have a physical space and center some of our work there, we will harness new technologies to bring the arts to everyone. This year will see us produce theatre, art, opera, and workshops in the metaverse to expand our audience to individuals on virtual world platforms.
In essence, we are a borderless theatre performing worldwide, live, online, and in the metaverse.
