We also provide ongoing support and mentorship to younger companies/artists who we believe in. Highlights from the past decade include: presenting our work in 50 theatres in 7 Canadian provinces and 11 countries around the world; co-founding PL1422; touring King Arthur’s Night to the Hong Kong International Arts Festival; our off-Broadway premiere; multiple local, national and international awards; and 25 years of creating work that includes a hugely diverse group of artists and collaborators.
