New Stuff Theatre seeks to be Canada’s foremost presenter of new, contemporary, cutting-edge international plays while cultivating new local artistic voices. The company aims to hire emerging artists of diverse disciplines to stage chic and comprehensive productions of both narratives born from our backyards, and the faraway narratives that are reflected within them.
In addition to being the widely recognized home of international theatre, New Stuff Theatre will become a home for many rising artists in Toronto. The theatre will provide them a platform to create and develop new work that will premiere to the world on our stages. The theatre will bridge the gap between artists of all performance areas, and will engage unlikely and artistically underserviced communities in Toronto through innovative and dynamic education and outreach initiatives.
We strive for more than tolerance – we open our arms and workspace to all people, and do not tolerate even the slightest bit of prejudice or oppression.
We keep everyone on their toes – we encourage all company members to step out of their comfort zones and take on roles new to them.
We take the work seriously, not ourselves – we bring levity to our workspace, even when dealing with heavy subject matter.
