//'täboolə 'räsə//


An absence of preconceived ideas; a clean slate. The mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impression something existing in its original pristine state




Tabula RaSa NYC Theater and Performance Lab is a theatrical artistic collective that originated within the Spanish-speaking communities of NYC. Our goal, in our -close to a decade- of continuous work, has been to reimagine an inclusive and egalitarian world, fostering cross-cultural dialogue to promote peace, social justice, and cultural changes that help depart from totalitarian views. 


Our mission and activism is a commitment to the cultural enrichment of immigrant communities about human rights, peace, reconciliation and coexistence, to make theater accessible to all, by expanding the company’s audience through the creation of new places of interaction, creative use of media, touring around the world, promoting educational programs, and other outreach efforts in the struggle against fascism and, particularly, neo-Franquist tendencies in Latin America today.


Our passion is fueled by the participation of diversified professional artists in Theater, Dance, Music, Visual Arts and Design. Tabula RaSa was founded on a previous decade of experience in content-relevant multilingual work, creating conditions that allow international dialogue and intercultural development through research, education, and creativity; leveraging social science tools and research to develop nuanced theatrical performances that speak to contemporary audiences, irrespective of language, sex, race, or religion, aiming to build bridges of communication across diverse cultures and communities worldwide.

Tabula RaSa plays an important role in the communities it touches, forming a desire to push creative boundaries within a safe and thought-provoking environment that encourages creativity and critical thinking. This comes to life through theater workshops on Reconciliation and Coexistence in Colombia, with communities victimized by the war and is amplified through their collaborations with the THEATRE FOR PEACE PROJECT, an international artistic exchange and collaboration effort between Tabula RaSa and the BKG theater company from Busan, Korea, to effectively promote cultural dialogue about Peace and Human Rights.
