Small Wooden Shoe



Artistic Director: Jacob Zimmer

Founded in 2001 by Jacob Zimmer in Halifax and now based in Toronto, Small Wooden Shoe is a (mostly) theatre company that swings between the intimate and the epic.

Small Wooden Shoe is named after the tools French workers would use to jam the machinery when on strike. Their “sabot” – small wooden shoes – gave English the word “sabotage.”

Like them, we want to disrupt the machinery of “business as usual” in hopes for a better world.

We believe theatre is a useful tool to think-through, feel-out and change-up important social, historical, political and other everyday issues.
