An artists collective dedicated to exciting and innovative work. A multidisciplinary company born and bred in New York City. We strive to create an environment for collaborative art rooted in our sense of community.
To incorporate non-traditional, innovative, post-fourth wall interpretations to reach new audiences and tell their stories.
To take theatre to the people by utilizing relevant educational and outreach tools to affect health and empowerment perspectives around the world.
To introduce theatre as a viable outlet and option for youth, a means to channel their creativity and talents in a way that gives them a voice.
To bridge cultural, generational and geographical divides by being a platform for universal artistic expression.
The Seven Collective’s vision is to revolutionize theatre into a social movement capable of articulating global commonalities, demolishing ignorance-driven intolerance and truly putting life on the stage.
The work we do today is in the spirit of defining our collective aesthetic. We regard our mission as both fluid and sacred. Fluid in that it is constantly evolving and will not serve to confine us but establish a point of departure. Sacred in that we strive to be true to ourselves and the purpose for our art. Our work is in the community, in the schools, in the mind and in the spirit.
We would like to acknowledge the brilliant minds that have applied their talents in concert to make this company possible.

Jean-Pierre Barthelemy discovered a love for theatre while studying mathematics at City College. With a background in music and a love of literature, he set out to become a triple-threat actor. Along the way, his technical acumen and savvy business sense lead him to producing. Starting with the Harlem Repertory Theatre as their Marketing Director he learned from Keith Lee Grant, Artistic Director and founder of the Harlem Repertory Theatre Company. Shortly after a successful run of Dreamgirlsand Dutchman, he assembled a team consisting of some of his favorite actors. That simple meeting developed into what is now The Seven Collective.
Our family, friends, soon-to-be friends, collaborators, inspirations and so many more.
