One Trunk Theatre

One Trunk Theatre is a theatre company located on Treaty One Territory in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We always create new work inspired by the community we live in, and the places we perform. Our work is created in collaboration with artists/people who are work outside the theatre medium. For example we have collaborated with new comers, videographers, graphic novelists, visual artists, chefs and more! We are a professional company, always paying our artists industry standard rates or more, and following industry best practice in regards to health, safety and contracting artists.

We have a small 20 square foot theatre called the Dollhouse of Commons. It is meant to be a performance space that can move from green space to green space, popping up around the city in parks, public spaces, festivals, schools and more! Audiences can peer through the windows and watch a performance inside, they can come in the house (1 or 2 at a time) and be a part of a show, or one side of the house opens completely and becomes a proscenium stage. The Dollhouse of Commons is home to theatre, puppetry, comedy, physical theatre, dance, visual art, performances and workshops. It is meant to surprise people, and welcome people in who may not usually get to see theatre. Can't come to the theatre? Don't worry! We'll come to you! All of the Dollhouse shows are free, making theatre as accessible as possible, and finding new and intimate ways for audiences to interact with performers.

We are putting together a tour this summer of Dollhouse shows that will go across the city. We want to partner with TD to present three of these shows in Winnipeg parks.
