Breaking Wave Theatre Company (BWTC) with API Middle Tennessee



To honor API Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month

Breaking Wave Theatre Company (BWTC), rooted on the island of Guam, is continuing its efforts to ​make waves beyond our shores with "Unspoken; Nashville." We are so excited to be collaborating with ​API Mid TN, a Tennessee based nonprofit organization that is working towards racial justice by building ​API (Asian and Pacific Islander) community, lifting API voices, and celebrating API identities.

Since its inception, BWTC's mission has been to affect positive change in our community through ​theatre and the arts. In 2019, we created "Unspoken" as a safe space to talk about mental health, suicide ​prevention, and substance abuse. These collections of powerful and important original works showed us ​the deep need to continue having these conversations, but more importantly the value of creating this ​safe space in as many places as we can. This series has allowed us to work with so many creatives of ​every skill level and from many places around the world. After three years of "Unspoken" on Guam, we ​can't wait to bring this work to Nashville.

Join us for our staged reading on Saturday, May 11 at the Barbershop Theatre. Tickets are free, but ​space is limit, so reserve your seat here.

To our Guam family - we are thrilled to share that "Unspoken" will be returning to Guam in 2025, so look ​out for opportunities to join us in developing works later this year!

This project is in part funded by Metro Arts Nashville.

We are here for you

Some of our work focuses on exploring serious issues relating to mental ​health, substance abuse, and more. We understand that the feelings ​brought upon through this exploration may not always end after the curtain ​closes. If you are looking for support and healing surrounding your ​experiences, reach out to 988.
