Ratatat Theater Group is a merry band of theater artists in Santa Barbara, CA, dedicated to innovative, community-oriented original work: active theater.
Ratatat is currently developing a new multi-year initiative,The Home Project. We will interview locals about how they make their home here–in a mansion, under an overpass, or squeezed in an apartment–and combine that with the stories of the Native Americans, ranchers, utopians and tycoons that made Santa Barbara their home in our past. Ratatat will use that material for a string of storytelling nights, work with community organizations to use the stories to jump-start public discussions, and conclude, finally, with a play.
The first stage of the Home Project will take place in schools this Fall. You can read more about it, and donate to support our effort, here.
Casey is currently developing this project with fellowship through National Arts Strategies. You can hear him talk about the Home Project for the fellowship here.
