About AXIS THEATRE COMPANY
Through the vision of Artistic Director Chris McGregor, Axis Theatre Company has developed world-class, highly original theatre. It has actively pursued a multi-disciplinary style of presentation, incorporating many theatrical disciplines including dance, clown, puppetry and acrobatics underscored by inventive text and music.
In the age of looking down at electronics, Axis Theatre draws young eyes up to engage them in interactive and relevant live theatre. Our production of ROBINSON CRUSOE + FRIDAY is on a National Tour to elementary schools and theatres in communities of all sizes across Canada, finishing in Prince George in May 2018. SOMEBODY LOVES YOU, MR. HATCH embarks on its inaugural tour in March 2018, with a sneak peak in Vancouver March 23 & 24 on Granville Island. TH'OWXIYA: THE HUNGRY FEAST DISH by Kwantlen playwright Joseph A. Dandurand had a spectacular season at Western Canada Theatre, The Talking Stick Festival, individual performances at the Frederic Wood Theatre, The Massey Theatre and in Whistler. A highlight was two performances in the Kwantlen Cultural Centre in Fort Langley.
This play joins other successful productions in our popular theatre for young audiences repertoire such as RAVEN MEETS THE MONKEY KING, KING ARTHUR’S KITCHEN, THE EMPERORS NEW THREADS, ROBINSON CRUSOE and of course THE NUMBER 14, our comedic tour de force, which earned both universal acclaim and multiple awards.
Stretching the boundaries of live theatre, Axis has produced over 58 original works and has recently bee awarded with three Jessie Richardson Awards for SOMEBODY LOVES YOU, MR. HATCH by the Vancouver theatre community.
