  • Description


    Our theatre company, has a unique theatre venue -- a 30 meter tall ship. We have been touring contemporary professional theatre for 53 years. Its innovative theatrical productions, performed on to the deck and in the rigging of the ship, has toured internationally: Canada, USA, Europe and the Mediterranean. We are not a cruise ship. The shows incorporate music, drama, poetry, video projections, cinematic sequences and large puppets.

    The company is preparing to sell the ship to a non-profit group in 2023 and close a long story of 25 years performing and touring on the ship.

    Workaway helpers may be welcome to stay on the ship in Richmond, close to Vancouver to assist the crew with different missions (several people are needed) :
    - edit video footage of the 2022 show
    - help organize the sale of the vessel to a like minded cultural organization.
    - update social media platforms to close the company
    - help organize the company's historical archives of 53 year of producing and touring which includes photographs and video
    - help with the company bookkeeping
    - clean up the ship from winter weather and prepare the sale of the vessel
    - help provision & prepare meals for crew on board the ship

    We strive to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion of all people. We create a community, and we intentionally welcome all. We value the diversity of ethnic and cultural identity and background, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and its expression. We foster a climate of purposeful inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, cared for, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other.
