Theatre Beyond Walls

Theatre Passe Muraille is a historic brick building with red lining

Theatre Passe Muraille (TPM) is Canada’s original alternative theatre company, located in the city of Toronto. Since 1968, we’ve created over 700 new Canadian plays. Our mission is to break down walls by pushing against boundaries; to create art with and for an audience, examining the marginal, the unexplored and the unforeseen.

OAC Recommender Grants

Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators (RGTC) are a great way for us to meet artists and start a conversation with them as they embark on their artistic journey. TPM would like to thank the OAC for funding these artists in their practice. 

Our selection team this year is comprised of Artistic Director Marjorie Chan, Community Member Merlin Simard, Associate Artistic Director Indrit Kasapi and Marketing Manager/Creative Producer Intern Emily Jung — we can’t wait to meet you and your work!

Accessibility Labs

A series of experiments integrating accessibility practices within the artistic process

Two years ago, we embarked to create experiments in accessibility practices by simultaneously exploring artistic and dramaturgical integration as well as exploring more efficient budgeting led by innovation. We are so pleased to be able to release this 7-part short documentary series, for FREE viewing online. We hope that these videos help you get a more intimate experience of the work and the learnings and thus, inspire you to use them within your own projects. Enjoy!
