Fugue Theatre’s mission is to generate innovation across the theatre and music communities by producing original, imaginative and boldly experimental Canadian musicals, operettas and plays with music. We strive to give voice to the new ideas that will drive the evolution of music-theatre in Vancouver. In doing so, we hope to stimulate a society-wide appetite for diversity in thought and culture. We believe that in combination, theatre and music have a unique ability to excite, unite and educate.
In choosing our subject matter, we seek out provocative, Canadian stories that both entertain and drive discourse. We work with artists from all cultures and encourage their unique perspectives as part of the creative process. We value integrity, respect for others, honest practice, consultation and collaboration. As a company headed by a female Artistic Director, we are personally committed to growing equity in Canadian theatre. In both development and production, we search for artists who embody diversity in identity, practice and experience.
Fugue Theatre believes that our audience is integral to the development of our work. We are dedicated to increasing participation in theatre through our mandate to provide inclusive, affordable, and accessible experiences of our productions. We invite our community to witness our works-in-progress and we welcome feedback from those who see it. By building direct relationships with our audiences, Fugue Theatre seeks to grow public participation and interest in challenging ideas and unconventional art experiences. In this way, we hope to link innovative music-theatre with an energized public discourse.
