A devised theatre piece by young artists, investigating how digital media impacts personal life.


Twitches & Itches Theatre is a St. Catharines physical ensemble company, with 8 core democratic members and 3 associate members. Our work has received critical acclaim, 14 arts council grants, and the 2017 St. Catharines Arts Award for Emerging Artist. Recent productions include The Bacchae, The Siren, and September Songs. The Comments Section is a new mentorship initiative, bringing our company’s unique training and creation methodologies to a handful of emerging artists in the Brock Dramatic Art program. Supported by the St. Catharines Cultural Investment Program, The Comments Section helps serve as a bridge between local training and the professional community. We couldn’t be more excited to present these remarkable emerging voices, who are sure to make their mark in the upcoming years!

The Comments Section has been created through a collaboration between young artists, investigating a theme that dominates their world: the interaction between life online and life in person. Built through philosophical discussion, collective research, and physical and vocal experimentation, it is sure to be a unique theatrical encounter.
