The NC Black Rep takes center stage in the world of arts and entertainment as the proud producers of the International Black Theatre Festival July 29-August 3, 2024. This historic event illuminates the powerful theatrical spirit and extraordinary talent of performers, designers, directors, producers and technicians from across the country and abroad.

During six life-impacting days, you will experience electrifying performances, riveting films, cutting edge spoken word poetry, engaging youth programming, informative workshops, insightful academic discussions and a vendor’s market steeped in the African Diaspora.
