General Auditions

Founded in 1992, Gargantua’s productions meld acrobatic-like physicality, flexible sets, original vocal work and the innovative use of media. The ensemble devises all-original works which are built from the ground up with the ensemble of artists (typically 4-6 performers), and a talented team of designers.

Theatre Gargantua’s auditions are normally held annually for each iteration of our Cycles of Work.

Performers interested in working with the company, should be able to move well and have a strong interest in creating original theatre. Please note the auditions are physically demanding. Our auditions are held in small, ensemble-like workshops that reflect our collaborative creation process.

We are happy to receive submissions from artists we have seen previously. Theatre Gargantua believes in equal opportunities and strongly encourages submissions from all performers regardless of gender, age, ethnicity and sexuality.

Rehearsals and performances take place October – December in Toronto.


Please send a cover letter and headshot to, and indicate if you play an instrument and your vocal range. Only successful applicants will be contacted about auditions. We thank all those who apply in advance.
