Seeking Independent Theatre Companies to Partner and Produce Season
January 25, 2013: TORONTO

918 Bathurst Centre for Culture, Arts, Media & Education and Apuka Theatre are accepting proposals from Toronto-based independent theatre companies to help form a new 'loose association' of companies based out of 918 Bathurst that will facilitate the development and production of works and enliven the Centre.

Our organizations passionately believe that the performing arts are essential in building strong community. Our goal is to combine the artistic visions of local theatre companies into a season that represents the diversity of the greater Toronto community and dynamically engages the public on multiple levels.

918 Bathurst and Apuka Theatre are looking for submissions from a wide range of theatrical styles in order to form a season of diverse shows running from late 2013 through 2014. As a member organization you will contribute to and benefit from:

1. Print & Online Promotional Sharing
2. Preferred Rental Rates for Meetings, Auditions, Rehearsals and Productions
3. Subsidized Fundraisers
4. Paid opportunities to Lead Workshops & Camps
5. A diverse array of passionately talented creators, producers and performers

Being part of the collective will not mean losing your own independent voice.

If you are interested in being part of an elite, loose collective of theatre companies in Toronto, then please submit via email to the following:

1. Background Information on your Company
2. Play you would like to rehearse and produce in 2013/2014
3. Biographies / CVs of key members of your company
4. Press clippings
5. Target Audience and Reach

Tour and Information Session
If you are interested in learning more, please come to our information session and tour of 918 Bathurst on Wednesday February 27th, 6pm.

About Apuka Theatre
'Apuka' (Father) Theatre was formed in Fall of 2010 by Natalie Feheregyhazi and named in memory of Natalie's late father: Hungro-Canadian director Tibor Feheregyhazi. With a mandate to produce shows that foster interconnectedness through naturalist and realist principles, Apuka Theatre provides its audience a place in which to escape, reflect and connect. To date, Apuka Theatre has produced two site-specific shows that have met with public and critical success: Frankie & Johnny in the Clair de Lune and a re-imagining of Michel Tremblay's La Duchesse de Langeais. Upcoming projects: Lady Julie.

"In a new interpretation of "La Duchesse de Langeais", Apuka Theatre moves Michel Tremblay's ageing, charismatic drag queen, from the beaches of a southern resort, to a busy Toronto bar and casts three actors to play the different personalities that lie behind the pomp and makeup."

La Duchesse de Langeais will show as part of the new Site Specific Category in the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, July 6-17.

Join us at The Central Bar, 603 Markham Street (behind Honest Ed's), and experience the joy of being able to relax with a cool summer drink while, simultaneously, taking in a piece of theatre from one of Canada's great playwrights.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, one hour before show time, on the day of performance or in advance on the Toronto FRINGE website.

Thanks again to everyone for a great turnout at the latest Crack for Actors. It's inspiring to see so much enthusiasm and support from both performers as well as the larger community. The tentative date for the next gathering is Monday, May 2nd.

Also, if interested in working on material in a more intimate setting with a group of supportive performers, Lorne Hiro offers a gathering for actors twice a week through the Actor's Playground. It's a space to play, experiment and grow along with other actors. It can be a great way to work on material on a regular basis and make new discoveries.
