DTC creates opportunities for a significant number of artists and arts workers, and is publicly and ambitiously dedicated to increasing equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its work and culture. I couldn’t be more excited at the opportunity to lead this wonderful company alongside Artistic Director Amylia Harris.”
