Our Vision

SHIFT Theatre is a flexible collective of collaborative artists working hard to cre-ate resonant and conscious live performance. We are committed to community en-gagement and challenging story-telling that encourages compassion and dialogue. SHIFT values creative development, proven by our SHIFT Workshop Series and the SHIFTLab program, which links new playwrights with professional mentors. We seek to champion and empower emerging and professional artists, teaching and returning artists, especially women and underrepresented voices, on and off-stage.

The SHIFT Festival is a multi-sensory experience not to be missed.

We humbly live, work and create on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓-speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and səlil̓wətaɁɬ(Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Sníchim-speaking Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation). We endeavour to honour First Peoples’ Principles of Learning, and seek out steps toward reconciliation.
