Founded by Michael Greyeyes (Plains Cree), Signal Theatre engages in practiced-based research to create live performance. Signal is inter-disciplinary and intercultural, creating work that reflects and privileges indigenous knowledges, as well as international creation methodologies that situate physical rigour and exploration as the centre of the work.
Signal creates new theatre works. Shifting across all frequencies, Signal explores both physical and text-based theatre, which moves through the disciplines of dance, opera, music, design and the spoken word.
Signal emits images, ideas and stories. Signal is committed to the collaborative process, experimentation and intercultural research. Our vision is to enrich the Canadian landscape through public performance/ interventions and to broaden the social and political awareness of our audiences both at home and internationally through touring and outreach. Signal places the human at the centre of our theatrical practice and, as our Elders have instructed, it seeks to make us whole, empowered and connected to one another.
