Welcome!

Human Cargo is a Toronto-based theatre company dedicated to the creation and touring of new theatrical works. Human Cargo brings together theatre artists from different cultural backgrounds to create original, multi-cultural productions. It's our role as theatre artists to explore the extremes of the human condition and to create a safe environment for our audiences to engage in a thorough and provocative discussion of ideas. The effect of Human Cargo's theatre is overt. We want to instigate social and political change.

Successful tour of 'Night'

Our show 'Night' wrapped up an international 10-week tour which took us from Nunavut to Nuuk, Greenland. We feel privileged to have shared our creation in such wonderful communities, and blessed to have worked with such great crews. Thank you to all who came to see it.

“Christopher Morris's Night is an emotionally powerful play that skips over the Northern clichés to cast a frost-covered but unblinking eye on the problems currently faced by the Inuit inhabitants of Canada's newest territory.” Review
