Welcome to TACTICS

Theatre Artists’ Co-operative: the Independent Collective Series or TACTICS is Ottawa’s innovative theatre series for independent productions, curated by Bronwyn Steinberg. TACTICS creates a platform for local indie artists to push theatrical limitations, share their stories with more of the community and dream big with their art.

UPDATE: May 21, 2020

Given the realities and restrictions of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we have transferred our regular Workshop Series of new plays to an online format, continuing to support development and collaboration by artists as they connect through video platforms like Zoom. While we already have several projects in development, this shift means that we now have more funds available to pay out to local artists, and so we are looking for new projects!

Take a look at our updated call for proposals for the 2020 Online Workshop Series, as well as the 2020-2021 and future Mainstage and Workshop Series here!

UPDATE: March 23, 2020

We at TACTICS have been very excited to launch our spring 2020 programming this week. We have 8 projects with 8 brilliant teams of artists that we are supporting this season, with workshops and productions we’ve been planning for late April and late May. However, with the current Covid-19 situation, we have decided to delay our programming announcement until we have a better idea of how the series will move forward. Stay tuned, especially to our Facebook page, for announcements of our programming, as well as our new online version of the Green Room Series of engagement and development activities!

The Mainstage Series presents full productions, mostly world premieres by local artists. The Workshop Series supports new works in development by Ottawa creators. And the Green Room Series brings our community together to connect, learn and grow.
