#BeyondTO

In the spring, our new presentation festival, #BeyondTO, will welcome three intimate stories from outside of Toronto!

We are re-opening our big red doors! Our brand new presentation festival #BeyondTO welcomes Scored In Silence (UK) , Bâtardes (Montreal)  and Crippled (St. John’s) to share intimate stories from the breadth of the human experience, from Hiroshima, to Mt. Everest, to a dock in Newfoundland. Let our hearts sync together in the same space again ❤️!

Coming to Toronto this May

Paul is wearing leg braces and leans on two crutches. He is white man with a strawberry blond hair, in the photo he is staring at something sternly.
