Axis Theatre

About the Artist

Axis Theatre is an entertaining, smart and inspirational company focused on engaging young and young-at-heart audiences. In the age of “looking down,” Axis draws young eyes up to engage them in interactive experiences that educate, inspire and transform. Audiences experience smart, entertaining interpretations of traditional and cutting edge physical theatre. Axis incorporates combinations of red-nose clown, mime, movement, mask work, puppetry and improvisation to expand the meaning and impact of the stories presented. It is deceptively simple, completely fresh and memorable.

Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish The Film and Kwi’ah: The Girl Who Heals are inspired by Kwantlen First Nation tales and moulded through the creative genius of Joseph A. Dandurand (Kwantlen First Nation).
