In the age of "looking down," Axis Theatre draws young eyes up to engage them in interactive experiences that educate, inspire and transform. Audiences experience smart, entertaining interpretations of traditional and cutting edge physical theatre. Axis incorporates combinations of re-nose clown, mime, movement, mask work, puppetry and improvisation to expand the meaning and impact of stories presented. It is deceptively simple, completly fresh and memorable.
Young minds are the soil into which we must sow the ideas, creating the right environment to nurture the imagination to create a better world. Axis travels extensively as well as performing right here in Vancouver, to reach young and old and connect them with wonderful ideas and with each other.
