MANDATE
Our mandate is to promote conscious evolution through Theatre, emphasizing themes of social justice.

HISTORY
Tottering Biped Theatre (TBT) was founded in 2009 as a social justice inspired theatre company. We devise contemporary pieces through a workshop process spanning several years to create highly physical works of artistic excellence during the Fall/Winter. During the summer we create contemporary, highly physical interpretations of Shakespeare. Our works have addressed poverty, Israeli-Palestinian relations, same sex marriage, violence against women, and mental health.

TBT has toured/been presented by regional professional theatres (Hamilton’s Theatre Aquarius, London’s Grand Theatre, and Kitchener’s MT Space), Performing Arts Centres  (Oakville, Guelph, Brampton, Hamilton, Mississauga), and theatre Festivals (IMPACT, Undercurrents, In the Soil) and internationally (New York State, Dublin, Albania).  In recognition of our work, TBT has been supported by the Ontario Arts Council, the Trillium Foundation, and the Canada Council for the Arts, and our work has been featured in over 15 publications including the Canadian Theatre Review and TED.com.
