Our Theatre

Aurora Theater Company acknowledges that our building, as part of the Berkeley community, sits on the territory of xučyun (hooch-yoon), within the ancestral and unceded land of the Chochenyo-speaking Ohlone people, the successors of the sovereign Verona Band of Alameda County.

We recognize that every member of the Berkeley community continues to benefit from the use and occupation of this land, since the city’s incorporation in 1878. Consistent with our values, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and make visible the East Bay Ohlone people and their unbroken relationship to their beautiful homeland.

As members of the Berkeley community, it is vitally important that we recognize not only the history of this land, but also that the East Bay Ohlone people are alive and flourishing members of the Berkeley and broader Bay Area communities today.

Thanks to Cafe Ohlone for providing the language used in this acknowledgment.

Plan your visit with transport and parking help from our Directions page, and make a night of it with our Dining Partners, who offer special discounts for Aurora subscribers.
