Are you an independent theatremaker who's generous, flexible, collaborative, curious, and willingto share and work in new ways?
Do you have a show you're itching to produce? We are searching for four awesome productions to support in the 2019 round of the RISER Project,taking place April 29-June 2, 2019 at The Theatre Centre Incubator.
RISER is a collaborative producing model, developed to help address some of the challenges of producing independent theatre in Toronto, including the high cost of production, difficulty of building audiences and inefficient use of resources and infrastructure. A growing community of Senior Partners work alongside Why Not to support this innovative producing model.
"Why Not Theatre are the true champions of the independent artist. I'm constantly floored by their commitment to truly giving me and all the other artists a platform...This is a little independent theatre company and they're so thorough. It blows my mind. I'm so super grateful to be a part of the RISER Project."
