Outside the March: Immersive Theatrical Experiences


Outside the March creates works that is:

  1. Immersive: We offer full theatrical experiences—personal and immediate encounters that endure.
  2. Site-Engaging: We transform found spaces into playgrounds of performance, as well as unearthing new possibilities within traditional theatres.
  3. New: We introduce local and international voices to our audiences—compelling stories that grapple with our here and now.
  4. Wide-Reaching: We are looking to captivate a wide range of individuals, especially audiences who might not normally find themselves in the theatre.
  5. Communal: We forge resonant collaborations between artists of all levels of experience and across disciplines, as well as meaningful partnerships within our community.
