Jumblies Theatre & Arts

Jumblies Theatre & Arts (founded in 2001; based in Toronto, ON, Canada) is an organization with international reach that collaborates with professional artists and diverse communities to create transient utopias and far-reaching ripples. Ange Loft (Kahnawake Mohawk, born in Kahnawake, QC, Canada; lives in Toronto, ON, Canada) is Associate Artistic Director of Jumblies and an interdisciplinary performing artist and initiator practising in Toronto. She is also a vocalist with Yamantaka//Sonic Titan. Her collaborations use arts-based research, wearable sculpture, and theatrical story-weaving to facilitate workshops and theatrical spectacle. Loft created the “Toronto Indigenous Context Brief” for the Toronto Biennial of Art’s Advisory Council.
