The Company-in-Residence program is designed to offer professional development, encouragement, and resources for a Vancouver-based company that is in its early years of creating and producing theatre-based performance.

The program is an opportunity for a young company to gain insight into the operations of a large not-for-profit organization, and to explore their own work within a supportive environment. It is designed as a “one-size-fits-one” model and can respond to the needs and aspirations of the chosen Company in Residence. A variety of goals can be proposed for the residency. For instance: development of company infrastructure; gaining perspectives about production, script development, or touring; the creation of a new work; or learning how to more efficiently market the art.

Our Company in Residence for the 2019/2020 season is rice & beans theatre.
