A BIT ABOUT THE COMPANY
Solo Chicken was formed in March of 2004 with a mandate to create and support the creation of new works of physical theatre, engage in community collaborations and to develop innovative educational programs. The company was formed in Toronto but relocated to Fredericton, NB in 2010 where it is now permanently based. In 2015 in response to a growing need in NB to support the growth of both emerging and professional artists, Solo Chicken launched the initiative, the coop, that aims to create professional works with touring potential that utilize the wealth of NB based artists.
Solo Chicken Productions inhabits a unique space in Fredericton and New Brunswick’s arts ecology as the only physical theatre Anglophone company in the region. In addition to bringing our expertise on community arts and arts education to the region we also aim to provide professional and emerging artists with economic and artistic opportunities.
