About the artist/company

Spec Theatre is a nimble lil’ theatre collective that creates performance-based artworks exploring contemporary society and culture through a speculative lens. We are passionate about art, theatre and collaboration. Since 2014 we have endeavoured to make art that is both entertaining and thoughtful. We live, work and make art on the beautiful, stolen, lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, known widely as the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. Specifically, we are based in Vancouver, BC. A constant work in process, wee strive to make our work, participation in our organization and our events as inviting and accessible as possible.
