NileGuide Expert tip:
Currently featuring the Dora Award winning play by Maja Ardal: "You Fancy Yourself".
The headline on Theatre Passe Muraille's website reads: "We cherish and challenge the aduience's experience" - and this is an ideology literally written into its name. Translating to mean "theatre without or beyond walls," Theatre Passe Muraille expresses its devotion to innovative, experimental new Canadian stage work in both implicit and explicit ways. One of Toronto's oldest alternative theatre companies, TPM is dedicated to supporting emerging, independent artists and performance companies. With a special interest in collaborative, multidisciplinary work and marginalized voices, TPM rents its two small venues to arts cooperatives and individuals that lack performance space.
