RBC Emerging Artist Residency

Introducing Limbus Work

Based in the Great Toronto Area (GTA), Limbus Work is a theatre company that aims to bridge social justice/activism and community engagement through theatrical exploration. Formed by young artists/activists with diverse lived experience, Limbus Work strives to create platforms for marginalized voices and shed light on the imminent social issues through storytelling and movement.



21.22 RBC Emerging Artist Focus

In response to the continued artistic isolation facing many artists as live performance continues to navigate the new normal, the focus for this year’s program is on Collective Artistic Process. Canadian Stage is interested in groups of artists, working collaboratively on a single project or research question. The RBC Emerging Artists program continues to encourages collective process, working with artists across disciplines and experiences, and cross-pollination of artistic ideas.

The collective/group can choose to work on a specific performance piece, either brand new or in process, and/or the space can be used to explore performance experiments and curiosities.
