A message from the Artistic Director

Since I moved to Toronto 14 years ago, Necessary Angel has stood out to me as a company that emphasizes risk taking, bold perspectives and theatrical innovation. Along with admiring the extremely high calibre of work produced, I have long been drawn to the company’s idea of artistic freedom, and the integrity of process that has set it apart. Necessary Angel’s history provides an ideal precedent to continue expanding and re-calibrating the notion of theatrical text. I am eager to invest in relationships with Canada's leading theatrical innovators from a myriad of disciplines, fostering the next wave of creation and giving theatrical voice to the most compelling and urgent ideas in our society.
