About UnSpun Theatre:

UnSpun Theatre is a Toronto-based professional company committed to creating work that is innovative, intelligent, inclusive, affordable, and entertaining. They’ve been the springboard for many of Toronto’s most inventive theatre artists and continue to foster creativity and challenge artists and audiences alike. The company believes in a collaborative, artist-driven approach to creating theatre. Their work is the result of collision and confluence; of shaping a single creation from several creative voices.

They are curious about how they can build a community of storytellers that share the responsibility of engaging with an audience. They aim to challenge audiences, to engage and to surprise.

Since 2004, UnSpun Theatre has been creating entertaining, award-winning work that consistently stretches the boundaries of the current English Canadian theatre tradition. Past works such as Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Thy Neighbour’s Wife, Don’t Wake Me and minotaur have been heralded as “marvelously executed,” “striking,” “compelling,” and “full of dramatic magic.”

One Block will be their eighth theatrical creation.

One Block

Everyone:$15 Students/Seniors/Industry:$12

One Block examines how each of us is shaped by our physical environments, by the people who have surrounded us, and by the histories that swell under our feet. Unspun Theatre imagines an investigative romp that explores a convergence of ideas about landscape and story.

One Block will be a performance, an exhibit, a series of stories and histories and an online archive created by Chris Hanratty, Shira Leuchter, Leon Aureus, Claire Calnan, Richard Lee and Aaron Willis, with some creative consultation by the Toronto-based architectural firm Studio Junction.
