Nadeem Phillip attended Ryerson Theatre School, where he was trained by Ian Watson of the Stratford Conservatory, and Dr. Cynthia Ashperger of the Michael Chekhov Association. Noteworthy credits include the world premiere of the smash hit Beatles musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, and the national tour of the award-winning Canadian musical Onegin. Nadeem is directing his focus towards culturally relevant work, striving to add non-colonial content to the Canadian theatre milieu. He is thrilled to be working as this year’s Factory Foreman. Nadeem currently resides on the land rightfully belonging to the Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, and Anishnaabe.
