IN SOLIDARITY

If your feminism doesn’t address and aim to dismantle anti-Black racism, it isn’t feminism. Nightwood Theatre unequivocally condemns the systemic racism and persistent threats to Black and Indigenous lives, and adds our voices toward seeking urgent justice.

A MESSAGE TO ARTISTS FROM NIGHTWOOD’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

We held a gathering last week for all of the artists associated with this past season’s productions – it ended up being about a twenty-person Zoom-gathering with friends from our casts, creative and production departments. And we just checked in one by one. Some of us knew each other, some people were meeting for the first time. The intimacy of this kind of ‘coffee’ could never have happened in real life before, because we’re able to acknowledge now that “how are you?” is a big question for everyone, in this new era of honesty.
