Red Betty Theatre has welcomed and centred IBPOC voices in Hamilton, Ontario through vibrant storytelling and theatrical presentations since 2011. There’s a clue about our name in our logo if you can read Hindi: lal beti – red daughter. Red for rage and blood and love; these three elements fuel women – forgotten women, shunned girls, outsiders daring to question patriarchal dominance while subverting beliefs that set up women and girls up to be accessories, impediments, or glorified servants.
Red Betty Theatre supports marginalized women’s voices. As the first local IBPOC feminist theatre company, Red Betty Theatre plays a vital role in Hamilton by making space for ‘other’ voices to grow and be heard. There’s enough room for everyone.
