Mission/Mandate

Goat Howl generates theatre and ritual experience. Whether working with text or devising collaboratively, at the core of every piece is a question about ourselves and about our community. We begin by probing, and investigating our position to the question, our will-to-know, and in performance affirm the unknowable.

Only some things can have fixity – essays and academia will always write things down – but, not performance, the unfixed, unbounded, fluid knowing. Our answers are not answers but proposals, playing in time/space line/design in front of/with/around an audience. We open basic themes to new meaning-making together with our ensemble and with our audiences.

We want to shake up sedimented meaning systems with our moving ensemble. We point the eye to the kaleidoscope forms created. Do we invite the audience to make meaning? Yes. Do we make meaning? Come and see.
