Early 2015 Unveiling
For 37 years this resilient little theatre company has wandered the city, often co-habiting with wonderful like-minded colleagues, but always without the security of space. In 2015 that will all change as we launch our new shared office and rehearsal space with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, Music on Main, and the DOXA Documentary Film Festival. Come check out our innovative creative hub for the community, in the heart of the downtown core.
This season is all about the power of place... the stories and songs embedded in our landscape and how we move forward to transform things that have been broken. Home is a constant theme, made all the more tangible by the unveiling of Touchstone’s new shared space — an innovative creative hub in Vancouver’s downtown core. The door is open…come on in.
