A Message from Soulpepper:

If the global pandemic has spotlighted the best of our society, it has also glaringly exhibited the fault lines of injustice that are all too prevalent. Soulpepper is a community of diverse artists, audiences and staff. We stand in solidarity with the Black members of our community, the Black Lives Matter movement, and echo the calls for justice.

We join our peer cultural institutions around the globe in recognizing the role we play in telling vital stories that connect us all. Societal cultural change is necessary, and companies like ours must play a role in taking action in dismantling the systems of oppression. We commit to telling stories from and with Black,  and other marginalized communities – stories that make us mad, make us laugh, teach us empathy, and drive progressive change. We recommit to representation from these communities on our stages, in our auditoriums, and with our staff; to creating a welcoming, safe, and supportive space for all; and to invest in the future of the incredible Black artists that move and provoke us.

Jamii Esplanade and Jeremiah Sparks Performance

This past April, we proudly partnered with Jamii Esplanade and Jeremiah Sparks to bring wonderful music to the community from their Kisanii Hub. We're in love with this performance, and so grateful to be able to enjoy this experience from our homes in challenging times.
