ABOUT THOU ART HERE THEATRE
Thou Art Here is an artist-driven theatre collective creating audience-engaged immersive experiences. We live and present stories in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) on Treaty 6 territory on Turtle Island. Our calling is to make theatre in unexpected places, in unexpected ways, for and about the people who are here. We will do this through developing cyclical processes for diversity, inclusion, and sustainability. Our work is based on forming ensembles grounded in the values of collaboration, community, and innovation. We aim for our theatre to be authentically and intentionally Edmontonian.
Founded in 2011, incorporated as a non profit in 2021, Thou Art Here is launching its most ambitious season ever in 2023. We are no longer dedicated just to the work of William Shakespeare and are thrilled to be presenting 3 unique projects and supporting 5 Edmonton based playwrights/creators.
