Haste Theatre: Mission Statement

Haste: Urgency of movement or action

Haste is a unified force of 5 women who create fantastical worlds to portray the everyday. We are multilingual actors, clowns, dancers, creators, puppeteers, singers and friends.

We are united with an urgency to celebrate the vulnerability and unpredictability of live performance. We use our patchwork of disciplines to reinvent old stories and create new ones.

Our shows sit in the uncomfortable place between laughter and tears. Fusing comedy and tragedy, the ugly and the beautiful – we shock, stimulate and entertain. We create magic through simplicity and haunting harmonies. Our playfulness and energy is infectious.
