Daniel Carter is a Toronto-based theatre practitioner; and a graduate of McGill University’s English: Drama & Theatre program where he concentrated on gender and sexuality performance, gay identification, and drag queens. Daniel’s current interests revolve around theory in performance, praxis, multimedia, solo-performance, and a combination of the aforementioned. Daniel’s written work was showcased at the 2016 Gay Play Day LGBTQ Festival, and Theatre Passe Muraille’s Crapshoot.
Most recently, Daniel has appeared in DLT’s Off Limits Zone at the Luminato Festival; Mr Pim Passes By (Village Playhouse); DLT’s The Stranger (SummerWorks 2015); Compass Theatre’s The Breadwinner (SpringWorks 2015); Oh! What A Lovely War (Players’ Theatre); and as the title role in Michel Tremblay’s Hosanna (Tuesday Night Café, Quebec English premiere). Daniel is currently working on Buddies in Bad Times’ Youth Elders Project (June 2017), as well as a multi-media solo cabaret performance inspired by the gay cult classic Mommie Dearest.
Daniel is looking forward to creating new work and exploring new methods of writing and creation with The Foundry and the support of Factory Theatre.
