Alistair Newton is a Toronto based freelance director of theatre and opera, as well as a playwright, dramaturge, photographer, and founding Artistic Director of Ecce Homo Theatre.
Ecce Homo Theatre was founded in 2005 by Alistair Newton, production designer Matt Jackson and Austrian installation artist Edith Artner. 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.
All of the artistic activities of Ecce Homo Theatre are dedicated in loving memoriam to Stephen Katz; long live the dreamers.
