What is TACTICS?


Theatre Artists’ Co-operative: The Independent Collective Series

TACTICS is Ottawa’s innovative theatre series for independent productions.

Mission: We are a platform for local indie artists to develop works that transcend industry limitations.

Vision: We believe in the value of sharing their stories how they need to be shared, overcoming a lack of resources.

Goals for 2021: Support local artists in the recovery post pandemic pause.

Co- Artistic Producers: Ludmylla Reis & Rebecca Benson

History :

TACTICS 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 2019 season featured a Mainstage Series of three world premiere productions and a Workshop Series of six works in development, all created by Ottawa artists.
