Matt Nethersole is a Juno Award nominated multi-disciplinary performer, educator and artivist. His work employs music creation, poetry, dance and theatre to express an eternal longing for nature and the cosmic complexity of human life. Matt’s career has taken him from the stages of Stratford and Shaw to Theatre Passe Muraille and Buddies in Bad Times as well as regional theatres across Canada. Matt is dedicated to using the arts as a mechanism for social change by making art accessible to over-exploited communities. Matt’s greatest hope for his life and work is that it be a symbol of loving kindness and a prompt for others to recognize their inherent power and value.
