Your donation, large or small, makes Electric Company’s innovation, collaboration, and artistic excellence transform from a dream into a reality.
Our internationally renowned artistic team, made up of Siminovitch Prize-winning director Kim Collier, Olivier Award-winning Jonathon Young, Governor General’s Award-winning writer Kevin Kerr, and best-selling author and Canada Reads-winner Carmen Aguirre, needs your help to continue creating groundbreaking work that will influence our lives and the national artistic landscape for years to come.
BREATHING LIFE INTO THE VANCOUVER PLAYHOUSE
Our largest and most ambitious project to date, directed by Kim Collier and written by Daniel Brooks, is The Full Light of Day. With this production Electric Company Theatre will usher in a new era. We will launch our new vision to create, produce and present large scale, stunning innovative works at the Vancouver Playhouse and restore the Playhouse as a landmark for theatrical excellence.
Since the demise of the Vancouver Playhouse theatre company in 2012, the venue has been lacking consistent large scale theatrical culture, and the artistic community has lost their largest platform. The Playhouse is now rarely a place for Vancouver’s diverse, multifaceted theatrical visionaries.
Our desire is to bring large scale, innovative works back to the Vancouver Playhouse, restoring the venue to its status as a landmark for theatrical excellence, and providing a place for ambitious, original and sophisticated theatre in our city.
It will take continued support from the city and our community, to achieve this ambitious dream. Collaboration is central to the Electric Company Theatre’s core identity, and we need you to join us on this exciting journey.
Please add your support and commitment to this exciting opportunity for Vancouver artists and audiences. No donation is too small!
