ARTICLE 11 is helmed by Andy Moro and Tara Beagan. Founded in 2013, ARTICLE 11 channels Moro and Beagan’s mutual desire to pursue the creation of live performance works with a holistic approach and a rigorous attack. The company is named for the 11th Article of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

“”Indigenous peoples have the right to practise and revitalize their cultural traditions and customs. This includes the right to maintain, protect and develop the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures, such as archaeological and historical sites, artifacts, designs, ceremonies, technologies and visual and performing arts and literature”

ARTICLE 11’s performative installation DECLARATION has been featured at the National Arts Centre and the Royal Ontario Museum and will be presented in Calgary at One Yellow Rabbit’s High Performance Rodeo and MT Space’s IMPACT in 2017. In Spirit, a theatrical work told from the perspective of a missing girl, has partnered with the U of Regina, GTNT, Ryerson U, Queen’s U, and will partner with Urban Indigenous Theatre in Winnipeg in 2017.

In April 2016, ARTICLE 11 premiered Reckoning  - an inter-disciplinary triptych tackling layers of fallout from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Karen Fricker wrote: “Its excellence sets the bar high… Reckoning demonstrates the unique work that live performance can do in bringing people together to share experience, raise awareness, and consider where each of us stands in the still-unfolding story of Canada’s relationship to its [sic] First Peoples.” Toronto Star, April 17, 2016. Reckoning will run in Edmonton in October 2017, with more tour dates to follow.
