About the Festival:
rEvolver is an incubator of new work with a focus on formal innovation, supporting emerging and early-mid career theatre makers at transformative junctions in their careers.
The festival presents adventurous, high energy, and sophisticated performance, bringing audiences the full range of contemporary theatrical practice, from script-based theatre to devised and site-specific works, and staged readings of work-in-progress.
rEvolver features primarily new Canadian work, although we will also consider submissions from companies wishing to premiere re- interpretations of existing works. In particular, we encourage work that takes risks, that is reflective of diverse voices and experiences, that is creative and has a clear artistic vision.
We program performances that appeal to a variety of demographics and reflect artistic and cultural diversity. We invite artists of all ages, abilities, cultural practices, ethnicities, socio-economic status, genders, religions, and sexual orientations to apply to participate in the festival.

- A performance guarantee, festival tickets, and box-office split
