 BLACK LIVES MATTER. BLACK VOICES MATTER.

Roulette stands in solidarity with the protesters and our staff, artists, audiences, and community to denounce racism, white complacency, and police brutality. We commit to serve, elevate, and amplify Black voices, work, and stories not only as a fundamental aspect of our ongoing mission, but in this critical moment and beyond. We recognize the importance of Black voices in how they have shaped our history, and how they will shape our future. Here are a few of the many performances we have had the honor of presenting that resonate especially strongly today.

We ask that you listen, watch, celebrate, and support.
