Since 2004, B2C has been making work on land that is covered by Treaty 13 and is situated on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit River, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, land that is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We spent 5 years (2014-2019) creating work in the city of Prince George on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T'enneh. The word "Lheidli" means "where the two rivers flow together" and "T'enneh" means "the People. For B2C, the ackowledgement of the land we create and live on is one of the ways we acknowledge the importance of Indigenous sovereignty on unceded territories.
*A territorial or land acknowledgement is an act of reconciliation that involves making a statement recognizing the traditional territory of the Indigenous peoples who called the land home before the arrival of settlers.

B2C Theatre aims to provoke and charge the soul by creating intense, highly theatrical, and visceral productions that explore dark themes, rich texts, and have a modern and social relevance to the world today.
B2C Theatre was formed in 2004 by theatre artists Lauren Brotman and Jack Grinhaus. We are keenly interested in the beauty, boldness, and truth born from confronting the challenges that face the human spirit. We present familiar themes in unfamiliar ways through the artforms of theatre and film, striving for full theatrical and cinematic experiences.
