The Centre for Indigenous Theatre is the only school of its kind in Canada. Our three & four-year full-time conservatory-style, post-secondary training prioritizes Indigenous culture; foregrounding the Indigenous theatre canon and prioritizing Indigenous knowledge, culture, language, values and practices. Students graduate with a solid understanding of western and indigenous traditions.
We are Indigenous lead for Indigenous students. Training at CIT is facilitated by faculty and masters drawn from diverse Indigenous & western instruction and practices. We have five key components enabling you, the students, to acquire and refine your skills incrementally through: core classes, specialized workshops, independent creation based on story weaving technique, mentorship, and performance.
