ETC Statement on Racism – 14 July 2020
Eclipse Theatre Company stands in solidarity with the voices fighting for change in Canada, the US and around the world. Black lives matter. Indigenous lives matter. People of colour’s lives matter.
As a company, we have the opportunity to educate ourselves and others and to contribute to the changes needed in order to achieve an inclusive society and the dismantling of systemic racism. We take responsibility for our actions and inactions that have contributed to white privilege and racism. We are currently working on identifying effective actions to be taken by our company, knowing that actions always speak louder than words. In the meantime, the first step is to educate ourselves, listen and learn.
Eclipse Theatre Company
Often times art lives in silos. Visual, media, dance, theatre arts and all the other art forms that reside inside that spectrum live side by side but rarely intersect in one production. At Eclipse, we combine as many of these elements as we can to create an explosion of art. It’s inside this collision of art forms that exciting things emerge. It is a cross pollination of art forms using unconventional or site responsive venues when needed, introducing the city and country to unique theatrical experiences.
- Evan Tsitsias, Artistic Director, ETC
We are artists who share a passion for musical theatre and the desire to contribute to Toronto’s theatrical ecology. We are so fortunate to have a team of extraordinary artistic associates, a board of strong visionaries and a panel of exceptional advisors. Art lives in collaboration and community and we are proud of ours and look forward to it’s continuing growth.
