About This Project

Taboo Theatre productions are developed and performed on unceded and unsurendered Mi’kmaw territory. We, as residents and visitors to Mi’kma’ki, are all treaty people, and aim to uphold our responsibilities therein while producing art.

Our goal is to explore theatre that challenges societal norms and explores power through centering the experiences and art of emerging artists and femmes.

Taboo Theatre was founded in 2006 and has produced a number of plays in Halifax, including The Waiting GentlewomanThe Murder PlayRutTattoo YouPorn Shoppe, the sold-out smash hit The WhoresAdult EntertainmentThe Madonna Painter and six shows featuring short plays in the Grand Guignol genre.

Taboo Theatre is a member of Theatre Nova Scotia and The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op.

MANDATE

We are a Halifax-based theatre company dedicated to:

  • exploring (and challenging) social and emotional taboos and their relevance,
  • developing new plays and providing opportunities to newcomers in the theatre industry
  • pushing boundaries – personal, societal, and theatrical, and
  • reproducing or restoring theatre forms that pushed boundaries in their time as a means of education and preservation

THE TABOO TEAM

In addition to working with an incredible roster of Halifax theatre artists, Taboo has a volunteer advisory board, which includes:

Lara Lewis (Artistic Director)

Mark Foster (Playwright-in-Residence)

Our Board:

Kirsten Bruce, Amanda Cormier, Jessy Matthews, Ivy Charles
