WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

Theatre Prospero is based in Amiskwaciy/Edmonton, Alberta/Treaty 6. Theatre Prospero creates productions of new and old theatre rooted in many cultures’ mythologies, from Zulu Epic to Shakespeare. 

 

The artists and audiences that come together to share these stories reflect their diversity. The venues where they meet include theatres in Amiskwachy/Edmonton, our home venue on Alberta Avenue, found spaces, classrooms, seniors’ centres and school gyms across Alberta. 

 

We also give Alberta students the chance to create theatre themselves with professional artists via our School Artists-in Residence Program. These have ranged from 250-student Shakespeare productions to original work created by students.

Since 2001, we have had the privilege to create with peoples of Treaty 6, traditional territory of the of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, and Métis. We have also had the privilege of creating with and for peoples of Treaty 7, traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina First Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation. We have also been honoured to create with and for peoples of Treaty 8, traditional territory of the Cree, Dene, and Métis.
