Who We Are
Toronto-based Broadleaf Theatre creates original works based on local, national and global environmental issues. The company seeks to merge environmentalism and theatre praxis and to make little-known environmental issues immediate and accessible.
Since its conception in 2014, Broadleaf has engaged over 70 emerging, diverse, and socially-engaged artists. Its debut work The Broadleaf Plays won the Presidents' Award for Best Production at the University of Toronto Drama Festival. In 2016, Broadleaf Theatre produced Bite-Sized at the Toronto Fringe, which featured 18 plays in 60 minutes, each exploring environmental topics from a Canadian perspective.
Its current work The Chemical Valley Project, created by Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong, documents the vital work of Indigenous water protectors and land defenders Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Beze Gray for their community, Aamjiwnaang. The Chemical Valley Project was a NOW Magazine Summerworks Critics' Pick and will be touring locally, nationally and internationally in 2018/19.
The company is led by Artistic Director and Producer Kevin Matthew Wong, and Associate Producers Mirka Loiselle and Angela Sun.
Broadleaf Theatre is thrilled to be a company-in-residence this year at Theatre Passe Muraille.
We will be presenting The Chemical Valley Project as part of Theatre Passe Muraille's 2018/19 Season in April 2019.
