Jared Beattie

(actor: Flag) 

Jared is a Saskatoon-based multi-disciplinary theatre artist, actor, musician and visual designer for print, screen & stage. He builds environments, geometrics, and oversized props. He is equally comfortable behind the scenes as on deck, providing designs for sets, lighting, sound, and projection along with acting, directing and musical accompaniment. He is a founding member of the Sketchy Bandits comedy troupe. He composes ambience, narrative beatscapes and punk noise, and is one half of the duo Actor Director. He has toured one North American coast to the other, and has performed at festivals such as Afro!Punk (New York City), MosoFest (Saskatoon), Western Canadian Music Awards (Winnipeg), and Sled Island (Calgary). He is a 2019 Saskatoon and Area Theatre Awards recipient in Sound Design. His inspiration is kindness and craft and language, and is a natural skeptic, besotted contrarian, and ruthless inquisitor.
