Where we create
Since Gum-Dip's focus is community-based, most performances are site-specific. We attempt to make shows accessible and inclusive to many different populations.
The Nepali Natak is a resident ensemble of the Exchange House. We facilitate workshops, trainings, rehearsals, and performances from within this cultural hub / international hostel of Akron. It's also the perfect space for our comfortable, intimate story circles for My North Hill.
The Exchange House is a public space supporting, empowering, and culturally enriching the community.
Our office is located in the Creative Business Center at Summit Artspace. We also use the building for collaborative meetings, trainings, and workshops.
Summit Artspace is a community art center bringing together in one location some of the best local artists, art education and arts organizations of the Greater Akron area.
Most of our performances are site-specific whether it's a scene featured in a festival or a performance in a park. We want community-based theatre to be as accessible and random as possible.
Some events we've performed for include BCAA Annual Festival, Open Streets Akron, Envision Akron, Global Village Festival, Ingenuity Fest in Cleveland, Summit StageFest, VIBE Collective, Reimagining the Civic Commons Conference, Stark County's English as Second Language Teachers, Akron Art Museum, and the Electric Pressure Cooker.
