Mandate

Theatrefront has been a dynamic part of Toronto’s theatre community for over 15 years. Known for our award-winning and stylish theatre productions, we create stories that are relevant to modern audiences that explore themes of personal and political identity.

Led by the vision of Artistic Director, Vikki Anderson, our work is developed by an ensemble of theatre artists who risk, experiment and transform together. We cross artistic borders to create theatre infused with music, movement and media. We cross geographic borders to create international co-productions with other theatre artists. We cross cultural borders to animate and investigate the communities around us.
