The Red Light District
Artistic Director: Ted Witzel
Artistic Director: Catherine Dunn
the red light district is an independent toronto-based theatrical conspiracy that propagates contemporary reworkings of (mostly) classical texts. since our inception in 2006, we have been producing work in toronto’s streets, bars, hotels, art galleries, parks, sex clubs, and even theatres, making theatre for people who don’t like theatre.
we aim to create works that ask difficult questions without offering reductive answers and that exploit the medium of live performance to the fullest, breaking down traditional notions of what theatre should be, asking instead what theatre could be.
marked by stylish design and athletic performance, the red light district’s productions explode at the point intersection of the private with the public; the point at which the political becomes personal.
—and we do this in theatre because theatre isn’t serious, and therefore is the best place to ask serious questions.
