About Twitches & Itches Theatre
Twitches & Itches Theatre inc. is an emerging artist ensemble in St. Catharines, Ontario, creating original works of theatre through processes of collaboration.
Founded in 2009 by Colin Bruce Anthes and Tom DiMartino, we moved permanently to St. Catharines in 2012 where we gradually built an ensemble of nine core artists with a long-term commitment to training and creation.
Throughout the years, our work has garnered critical acclaim, sold-out houses, standing ovations, and over fifteen arts council grants.
With a steady output of productions, workshops, commissions, and admission-free community arts projects, Twitches and Itches has steadily grown to become the area’s largest employer of new generation theatre artists.
- To nurture a creative and compassionate community through top-quality artistic enterprises
- To bring together and foster emerging St. Catharines-area artists
- To engage in creative processes that challenge and broaden the horizons of the artistic team
- To facilitate easily-affordable ticket prices, so that no member of the community is excluded from cultural participation
Twitches & Itches Theatre is a multi-disciplinary not-for-profit emerging artist company devoted to the creation of new works that explore theatre as a mode of storytelling. At the heart of our work is an enthusiasm for exploration, and a belief in the potential for breakthrough and discovery that lies in the unknown. Our creative process always contains strong elements of experimentation, such as devised physical creation, and collaboration with professionals in non-theatrical disciplines.
