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. TACTICS has achieved incredible success in our first two seasons (2014-15 and 2015-16), garnering 14 Prix Rideau Award nominations. The 2017 series ran for three consecutive weeks, with a Mainstage Series and a new Workshop Series of works by local creators in different stages of development, as well as a series of special events. 2017-18 was a development year for TACTICS, featuring a Workshop Series of four new works by local creators, as well as the addition of the new Green Room Series of professional development and community-building events. Meanwhile, we on the steering committee have been working to build our organizational capacity for the coming years.
Our 2018-19 Green Room Series is already underway, and please stay tuned for the announcement of our fifth anniversary series in January 2019. Our fifth year will feature a Mainstage Series of three world premiere productions and a Workshop Series of six works in development, all created by Ottawa artists.
