Est. 2009.

Resident Companies

Company 605 continues to push into new territories and awaken a fresh and exciting aesthetic, together building a highly athletic art form, with extreme physicality derived from the human experience.

Electric Company inspires audiences with a renewed sense of possibility: with performances that consistently defy and expand the definition of what live theatre can be.

Neworld Theatre creates, produces and tours new plays and works that challenge systems of oppression. Our motto is: 'plays well with others', and our foundation is a Framework of Care.

Playwrights Theatre Centre is a dramaturgically-focused theatre company that finds, nurtures, and advances the Canadian playwright, supporting new plays from creation to performance.

rice & beans theatre tells stories of where we come from and where we are going, by ways of experimentation with languages and the theatrical form.

Rumble produces contemporary plays from the Canadian and world repertoire, commissions and produces new Canadian adaptations of outstanding stories, and fosters meaningful interactions between emerging and established artists.

Tara Cheyenne Performance creates kinetic theatrical expressions through exquisitely realized characters, crafted choreography, unapologetic use of comedy, and lashings of tragedy.

Theatre Conspiracy creates theatrical events that activate discussion on vital contemporary themes in the international conversation.
