Festival History

In September 2003, six Asian American theaters attended a convening sponsored by Theater Communications Group and were inspired to claim their place in the theatrical history of this country. The six companies, Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, East West Players, Ma-Yi Theater, the National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO), Second Generation, and Mu Performing Arts, began discussions in June 2004 to build upon what had been learned at the TCG convening. A groundbreaking decision was made: to hold the first ever national Asian American Theater Conference. Spearheaded by Tim Dang of East West Players, and joined by five other companies from around the country, the "Next Big Bang: The First Asian American Theater Conference" took place in Los Angeles from June 18-20, 2006. It was a resounding success.
