The Take Up

The Take Up is a company offering new and alternative performance in Hamilton and across Ontario.  Founded in 2014 by Rose Hopkins, The Take Up (at the time called Mooncalf Theatre) premiered at the Hamilton Fringe Festival, winning "Best of Galleries" for the short, one-woman show, The Rabbit Done Died. Since then, The Take Up has presented work at the Hamilton Fringe Festival, Frost Bites Festival, RHIZOMES In The Soil Festival, and Supercrawl.  Rose Hopkins is an actor, creator, and producer and the founder of Mooncalf Theatre. After graduating from the University of Windsor’s Acting Program, she has continued her theatre education with Toronto Fringe’s TENT program, Hamilton Fringe’s ALERT Program, and Generator’s Artist Producer Training program. As a producer, she has worked with hammer theatre, Why Not Theatre’s RISER Project, Open Heart Surgery Theatre, No Porpoise Productions, and others. Rose received the 2016 City of Hamilton Arts Award for Emerging Theatre Artist. In February 2016, Hopkins created a piece called The Distance Between Us and the Sun that premiered at the Frost Bites festival in the Cotton Factory. While audiences listened to a track on headphones and watched from a second story window, actors performed in the parking lot below. ​The Take Up's Supercrawl performance will explore a similar dynamic, but will be even more intimate.
