Single Thread Theatre Company exists to create live theatrical immersive experiences. Since forming in 2003, the company has collaborated with over seven hundred artists to produce thirty-four productions for audiences across the globe, and has played a role in shaping enthusiasm and best practices for site-specific and immersive theatre in Canada and beyond.

Single Thread has collaborated with some of Canada’s best theatre creators in creating site-specific work, including Judith Thompson, Waawaate Fobister, Kat Sandler, Adam Lazarus, Viktor Lukawski, Dave Carley and Antony MacMahon. The company frequently works with organizations as a content programmer for selected spaces. Recent partnerships have included Punchdrunk, Volcano Theatre, Outside the March, Parks Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario and Mackenzie House. In 2018, the company presented ‘Ambrose’ in Bangkok, Thailand as part of the Bangkok International Theatre Festival for which the company received the distinction of “Best International Artist”.

Looking forward, Single Thread is developing immersive storytelling techniques as a teaching tool in Canadian schools through the Single Thread Education program. The company is also exploring the emerging medium of XR (augmented, virtual and mixed reality) as a means of telling stories to a broader audience through Single Thread XR.
