"Alistair Newton and Ecce Homo are building one of the mostimpressive bodies of work in the country, sifting through queerhistory to create intellectually rigorous and theatrically sharp works." -NOW Magazine.
Ecce Homo Theatre was founded in 2005 by director/playwright Alistair Newton, production designer Matt Jackson and Austrian installation artist Edith Artner when the three were attending the University of Victoria in British Columbia. Now based in Toronto Ontario, Ecce Homo has a mandate to produce stylized theatrical works with strong socio-political content which synthesize text, music, dance, and design; to yield a total theatrical experience. Ecce Homo strives to equally balance politics and entertainment, to challenge audiences visually, intellectually, and emotionally; to produce work on big themes for troubled times. - Alistair Newton, Artistic Director
All of the artistic activities of Ecce Homo Theatre are dedicated in loving memoriam to Stephen Katz; long live the dreamers.
