Who We Are

Breaking Ice is the award-winning program of Pillsbury House Theatre that for 20+ years has been cultivating courageous and productive dialogue around issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. A diverse company of professional actors portrays real-life situations customized to meet the goals, needs and culture of your unique organization. Breaking Ice increases awareness of biases, understanding of barriers to inclusion, and motivation to take action for positive change.

What We Do

Breaking Ice performances blend drama, music, poetry, movement and humor in a series of dynamic scenes to explore how systemic inequities, implicit bias and common misperceptions show up in relationships, creating uncomfortable interactions that inhibit innovation, motivation and productivity in the workplace. Following the performance, trained Breaking Ice facilitators lead your organization in a reflective discussion to deepen awareness and cultivate accountability and action. Breaking Ice sessions are now available in virtual as well as live formats.
