OAC Recommender Grants

Previously known as the Theatre Creators’ Reserver, the Recommender Grants allow Theatre Gargantua to assist artists working in multidisciplinary performance and in exploring new modes of performance creation. We recommend projects focused on collective creation of multidisciplinary theatre and/or physical theatre, and new processes of theatre creation. We are excited and interested in receiving applications from across the province in novel forms.
