BEAT (Brooklyn Emerging Artists in Theatre) is a performing arts initiative for the community of Brooklyn. BEAT seeks to present performance events that express the borough's profound diversity, celebrate the area's finest spaces and unify its broad, expansive community.

BEAT is wholly dedicated to fostering and creating new audiences for Brooklyn’s finest performing artists. Ultimately, BEAT is committed to supporting and presenting performing artists who are offering tremendous innovation in the art of performance, and connecting these artists to each other in the hopes of birthing new work and new forms. Through the BEAT Festival and educational programming, BEAT is creating a live, interactive performance study of Brooklyn—the grounds of the richest performing arts community in the world.
