A Host Of People


A Host Of People


A Host of People is a Detroit-based multi-racial ensemble theater company creating original work that celebrates complexity, imagination, and the synthesis of seemingly disparate elements—at once epic and intimate, political and personal, poetic and approachable. AHOP creates aesthetically rigorous, intellectually challenging theater that is also warm, welcoming, and inspiring to people from all walks of life. They choose their subject matter and themes carefully with an eye to stories, topics, and aesthetic approaches that will be equally thrilling to the most adventurous theater fans as well as those with less exposure to the form.
