Creators: Leveille, Christopher
Abstract:

While the growing independent theatre scene has served as a catalyst for artistic innovation in the theatrical ecosystem, it is facing its own specific challenges in relation to venues, sustainability, and audiences. Given that, this study seeks to understand how we might secure the future sustainability of the Toronto independent theatre scene. Using semi- structured expert interviews, this study has set the foundation by developing a thorough understanding of and insights into the independent theatre ecosystem in Toronto and its relationships to film and television, as well as the institutional and commercial theatres, at present, as well as identifying practitioner-perceived challenges and changes to those ecosystems. It concludes that to answer the question and ensure the future viability and sustainability of the system, a preferred future must be developed using the input of multiple stakeholders, and proposes a workshop methodology to do just that.
