The artistic mission of Aluna Theatre is to embrace the myriad of voices, cultures, and stories of our population, which are transforming the landscape of Canadian theatre. In our plays, works in translation, and international co-creations, people are complex individuals who exist beyond the restrictions of cultural labels. We encourage new hybrids of theatre evolved from a rich collaboration of experiences, performance traditions and media by engaging both emerging and established theatre professionals.
Our work reaches out to diverse audiences in Canada and abroad. We build liaisons that promote art as a way to empower, and a way to share with each other and the world the idea of living in harmony.
We welcome into our circle of support and celebration the TransAmerican artists living and working here, who represent the breadth of cultures and languages from across the Americas.
“This is what I know:
Aluna Theatre has been built out of love. This is my life’s work. I do it because I want artists of the coming generations to have the freedom, space, and resources to create with the entirety of who they are as individuals. To those artists I say:
Never hide, apologize, or justify your culture, the colour of your skin, or where you come from to a colonizing and patriarchal system that seeks to destroy the very essence of who you are.”
– Beatriz Pizano, Artistic Director
