The Denver Black Arts Company was the artistic vision of members of the African-American theatre community in Denver that began in 1976. The company initially nurtured today’s leaders in African-American theatre; The Source Theatre Company continues that tradition today.
The company has evolved into a theatre company that continues the legacy passed on from the Denver Black Arts Company to Eulipions Inc., and to Shadow Theatre Company. The Source Theatre Company has taken the artistic spirit that took root 36 years ago and moved it into the future. Click here to read their history on their website.
