ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
rEvolver is an incubator of new work with a focus on formal innovation, supporting emerging and early-mid career theatre makers at transformative junctions in their careers. 

The festival presents adventurous, high energy, and sophisticated performance, bringing audiences the full range of contemporary theatrical practice, from script-based theatre to devised and site-specific works, and staged readings of work-in-progress. 

rEvolver features primarily new Canadian work, although we will also consider submissions from companies wishing to premiere re- interpretations of existing works. In particular, we encourage work that takes risks, that is reflective of diverse voices and experiences, that is creative and has a clear artistic vision. 

We program performances that appeal to a variety of demographics and reflect artistic and cultural diversity. We invite artists of all ages, abilities, cultural practices, ethnicities, socio-economic status, genders, religions, and sexual orientations to apply to participate in the festival.

We acknowledge the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia.

 

The Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance (GVPTA) strives to strengthen the local theatre industry. We do this through providing services, promotion of member news and community events, opportunities to connect and network, and our annual theatre conference. Together with our members we are raising the profile of local theatre and building community.

At GVPTA, we acknowledge that our organization is located on the traditional, unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
