Theatre Caravel is an artist-driven, Toronto based theatre company, focused on developing new work and bringing contemporary perspectives to established works.
We believe in creative expression as a necessity and support artists of all mediums in sharing their work with the community.
We strive to create theatre that is changeable, innovative by necessity, and important by default.
Theatre Caravel was formed in the winter of 2009 by former University of Toronto and Sheridan College classmates, Eric Double and Julia Nish-Lapidus. The company began by hosting an evening of new performance, called Sea Change. Sea Change is an initiative started by Theatre Caravel to bring together artists from various mediums to share something new. Since the very first event, Sea Change has been a sell-out; presenting exciting new work to diverse audiences. It has been a starting point for many well-known performers to develop new work. Theatre Caravel has also presented many successful productions, beginning with Darren O'Donnell's Over, which was picked up for a remount by the Theatre Centre, after its initial production. Next was a double bill of Daniel MacIvor one acts: See Bob Run and Wild Abandon. In 2011 Theatre Caravel was chosen as the Canadian Stage GYM Team, and helped develop the show Modern Love for the Festival of Ideas and Creation, which then continued on to a successful run at the Next Stage Theatre Festival in January 2012. Theatre Caravel continues to create exciting and i nteresting theatre through its work with emerging theatre artists, while building a community that supports artists of all types.
