Wyrd Productions Inc.
Incorporated in January of
2000, WYRD Productions has been involved in the development of new theatre
since 1995. Founded by Rick Miller and Jeff Lord as a company devoted to
multi-disciplinary artistic creation, it has since evolved into one of Canada’s
leading international exporters of culture. WYRD has produced the award-winning shows Art?, Slightly Bent, Into The Ring
and the worldwide hit MacHomer (which
has recently completed a 17-year run, playing in 165 cities to 500,000 fans!). The 2
latest WYRD Productions have been co-creations with Daniel Brooks and
Necessary Angel: Bigger Than Jesus (which Miller has
performed all over the world, in English, French, Italian and German) and HARDSELL
(now reworked as HARDSELL 2.0 in English and VENDU in French). Current projects in development with KDOONS include:
Each of these projects, old and new, are being developed in conjunction with cutting-edge outreach materials, with a goal not only to entertain, but to educate, enlighten and empower a new generation of theatre-goers.
