WillHeBop_Algiin&AngieBlack Artists Contemporary Cultural Experience (BACCE) is an artist-run theater company dedicated to presenting plays by, for and about black people.  We are a multi-national, multi-ethnic company in recognition of the complex nature of identity in the 21st Century.   We are the new black – uninhibited, uncompromised, unafraid and unbound.

Black Artists Contemporary Cultural Experience (BACCE) was founded in 1993, in San Francisco, by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe and Lester C. Jones when they lost their lease on the ground-breaking performance space, Sugar Shack Performance Gallery & Cultural Center in the Lower Haight.  The challenge presented by the lack of space created BACCE as a nomadic theater company and engendered collaborations with several performing arts institutions in San Francisco beginning with a collaboration with Theatre Rhinoceros on the World Premiere of Wayne Corbitt’s, Crying Holy.
