Daniel Brooks, 1958–2023

We are terribly saddened to learn of the passing of writer, actor, director, producer, and performing artist, Daniel Brooks. Brooks worked in the realm of theatre for four decades, receiving recognition and acclaim for his outstanding contributions to the field. He studied multiple creative disciplines, including theatre, clown, dance, and puppetry.

Brooks was the winner of the inaugural Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, and was a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award in Theatre for The Noam Chomsky Lectures, the play he co-wrote with Guillermo Verdecchia.

Brooks will be remembered as a rare and exceptional creative force. We extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones during this sad time.
