Do you feel lost? Are you troubled? Are you behind on your emails?

Do you yearn for community that enhances, rather than annihilates, the feeling of being a true individual?

The world is full of uncertainty and inharmony, but for one week only, salvation is passing through (your town/city/municipality)! Gather together with our new leader, all-American World-Wartime gal Pearle Harbour, under the milky canvas of our beautiful tent. We will sing together, learn together, breathe together, and live our Truths! In our Chautauqua tent, we come together because we’re falling apart.

About The RISER Project
In order to create more access and opportunity for artists, Why Not Theatre is looking at new ways of producing theatre in Toronto for independent artists. The RISER Project brings together a community of senior leadership and emerging artists, to support the artistic risk that independent artists must take in order to create and innovate. The model is designed to maximize existing infrastructures by sharing resources, risk and energy to reduce the producing burden on artists. The senior partners of the 2017 round of productions are Necessary Angel, Nightwood Theatre, fuGEN Theatre, Modern Times, and The Theatre Centre. RISER is made possible with the generous support of the Toronto Art Council’s Open Door Program and the Government of Canada.

The RISER Project also features:
The Draupadi Project, April 17–26, 2017
Two Birds One Stone, May 3–13, 2017
