Theatre Artists' Co-operative: the Independent Collective Series (TACTICS) supports independent Ottawa theatre artists in presenting innovative works of theatre that are challenging or impossible to present without support and that don't fit in to the production model of Fringe and other festivals. TACTICS presents these works as part of a series at Arts Court Theatre.

Mandate & History

Artistic Director and Series Curator Bronwyn Steinberg formed TACTICS in 2013. TACTICS commissions and programs works that make the most of the liveness of theatre and that place emphasis on how the audience experiences theatre. TACTICS embraces larger-scale works that exceed the production limitations of Fringe and other in-repetition festivals with the potential for larger casts and more sophisticated design elements. Also, TACTICS seeks to celebrate Ottawa as a city for artistic development, not simply a stage for national and international touring shows.

The first series ran from November 2014 to April 2015, followed by a second series running from November 2015 to April 2016. In these first two seasons, we presented 9 new independent Ottawa productions, 7 of which were premieres of new works by local creators. These productions and the associated artists were nominated for 14 Prix Rideau Awards, with 3 of those nominees going on to win in their categories. [1]
