To present inventive, bold and challenging productions of classical drama of the highest artistic quality. To expose this work to the widest and most diverse audience in a manner that is accessible, non-elitist, affordable, educational, and entertaining. Aquila takes a visceral, dynamic, and physical approach to its work, selecting, training, and most importantly, retaining a highly disciplined ensemble of performers. Aquila approaches classical texts seeking to free the spirit of the original play and discover its essential dramatic power. In a world of mass-produced entertainment, film, TV, and video games, Aquila believes that theater should be as ‘live’ an art form as possible and strives for the highest standards in acting, choreography, music, design, direction, and production. Aquila also promotes internationalism and diversity in the Arts and seeks to raise important and relevant issues of social justice.
