Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre creates and produces original theatre, ranging from new Canadian works to pieces from the international repertoire. We foater the development of our artists through collaborative processes exploring new forms of theatre practice. We educate and engage our audience through our artistic works as well as our community outreach programs.
Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre is committed to the pillars of story, investigation, collaboration and risk. Never afraid to shine light into darkness, we create theatre that reveals the vulnerable heart and champions the brave idea.
Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre is drawn to the overtly political and the intensely personal. We explore stories of violence, idealism, compassion, love, corruption and redemption, both within the individual and within community. We do this through a collaborative process that supports boldly imaginative concepts, process-supported risk-taking, arduously-developed texts, and a unique collaborative process that brings out the best of our artists. Our vision moving forward is to create and share these brief and startling theatrical moments, in order that we might contribute to the vital dialogue at the root of society: “What is becoming of our world? What is my role in it? What can I do about it?”
