Founded in 2015, Maaa Art is a theater and film production company working between New York City and Tehran. It was founded by a group of immigrant artists with the objective of creating an artistic platform for people like themselves who have more than one country they call home. Maaa means “us” in Persian, referring to our ensemble as well as our audience and us.
Maaa Artists believe that storytelling is one common language that can help us see beyond our political differences. We come closer together when we know each others’ stories.
Maaa Art works with artists and other community members to create plays and films. Through our art and collaborations, we seek to build a community of engagement, creativity, and mutual support.
