To create site-sympathetic productions of Shakespeare’s works or adaptations of his works.

WHAT IS SITE-SYMPATHETIC? Site-sympathetic work is developed in collaboration with the space. Thou Art Here highlights found-space environments, which in turn inform our work. We strive to create an interactive relationship between the space and work, creating a brand new experience for the audience and performer.


  • Immersive - To push the boundaries of interactivity and intimacy in theatre performance.
  • Innovative - To create contemporary and relevant productions of Shakespeare that appeals to a young audience and challenges a conventional audience.
  • Adaptive - To develop new Canadian works based of Shakespeare’s writing.
  • Collective - To work and connect with an ensemble of artists from a diverse background.

From campus bars, to street corners, to a darkened bedroom, we transform the space around us into a living, breathing, in-the-moment spectacle.

Production History

Thou Art Here has produced 9 shows in venues ranging from a train station, historical house, an alleyway and the Edmonton river valley. We have performed as part of the Edmonton International Fringe Festival, the Found Festival, the Freewill Shakespeare Festival and Snow Globe Festival of Children's Theatre. [4]
