ALISTAIR NEWTON, THEATRICAL DIRECTOR


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. Alistair's work marries North American and European directorial practices by synthesizing a text based, actor-centric rehearsal process with a visually rich, conceptually rigorous aesthetic.

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. All of the artistic activities of Ecce Homo Theatre are dedicated in loving memoriam to Stephen Katz; long live the dreamers.
