Signal Theatre is a Canadian-based theatre company.

Artistic Director: Michael Greyeyes
Artistic Associate: Nancy Latoszewski

Collaborators and partners include Native Earth Performing Arts, DanceWorks, Banff Centre for the Arts, the National Arts Centre, and the Canada Dance Festival.

Mission:

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.

Mandate:

Founded by Michael Greyeyes (Plains Cree), Signal Theatre engages in practiced-based research to create live performance.  Signal is both interdisciplinary 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.

Vision:

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.
