The Transformations Project


By Kristi Hansen / Catalyst Theatre

What if disability were a part of humanity and neither an inspiration nor a repulsive thought? What if disabled people were allowed to live, love, fail, and exist without the pressures of being an inspiration?

Catalyst Theatre recognizes that where we create, share and tell stories is located on Treaty 6 territory as well as Region 4 of Métis Nation of Alberta, the traditional territories of the nêhiyawak, Saulteaux, Niisitapi, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Métis, and other peoples. In doing so, we recognize that we are a part of a larger journey of growth, creation and working alongside all voices that call this place home.
