Cahoots Theatre Company
Cahoots is dedicated to the creation, development and production of new works that investigate the complexities of Canada’s cultural diversity, and examine the intersections of these cultures. Diversity is more than race, nation of origin and ethnicity. It also encompasses gender, sexuality, ability, language and class.
Our work questions, challenges and transforms notions of contemporary Canadian life, and explores our evolving connection to the world around us. It encourages us to consider and honour our history, while stepping boldly into the future.
We believe in artistic creation of the highest calibre, with a theatrical vision that is powerful, innovative and globally relevant.
