- We run programs for artists, and arts workers, young people, educators and learners, audiences, and general community.
- Work happens in our Studio/Office at the Artscape Wychwood Barns in midtown Toronto, in theatres around the city, schools and classrooms, community centres, apartment buildings, libraries, other work spaces, clubs, and parks.
- Our focus is developing and producing theatre, plus supporting the artists and creators; but we also integrate many other artistic disciplines in the performance art we generate and present. So in any given project you may find musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, and dancers participating and contributing to how we tell stories.
In addition to developing and producing new works by diasporic artists, our rAiz’n the Sun Training Program has become a springboard for much of Canada’s emerging talent. We are especially proud of the many artists who trained through b current in their formative years, choosing our company as a home to grow their craft.
