Who We Are
Lookup Theatre’s artistic form is storytelling, expressed through contemporary circus arts and theatre. It’s creative non-fiction – we tell true stories with imagination and originality, using movement, text and metaphor to recount real events with sophisticated spectacle. Lookup creates transformative experiences for participants and audiences through process, community and performance. Lookup Theatre was created in 2009 and has been a charitable organization since 2010.

Growing up on the family farm in Grey County, Ontario, Angola Murdoch’s childhood was spent dancing and doing gymnastics. Since then, her movement repertoire has grown to include many disciplines such as aerial circus arts, acrobatics, and capoeira. For the last 20 years Angola has enjoyed a long and rich career locally, having performed at major venues in Ontario (Buddies in Bad Times, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canadian National Exhibition, and others) and internationally (Cirque Pacifica (Maui), Gramercy Theatre (NYC), and Zip Zap Circus (South Africa)). A highlight of Angola’s career was being a Klingon aerial silk performer on Star Trek: Discovery. Currently, Angola is a company member of Femmes Du Feu Creations.
Through LookUp Theatre, she creates contemporary circus and theatre productions inspired by true stories. Angola has directed six full-length contemporary circus shows, including 2019’s Toronto Circus Riot. Based on the actual Toronto Riot of 1855, the Circus Riot premiered to packed audiences and critical acclaim and garnered a Dora Nomination. LookUp Theatre is currently touring across Canada with Twist Of Fate, Angola's solo show.
