    Shadowpath will introduce a female-driven theatre festival to York Region. This includes classical plays by women alongside new works. Educating artists and audiences about female creation we will establish a professional platform for theatre practitioners while addressing the issue of under-representation of women in the performing arts.

    We are setting up a script reading committee and will launch a pilot fest in Spring 2021. Stay tuned for more exciting info.

    This efforts are made possible due to support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation

  • ABOUT

    Transforming Everyday Places Into Creative Spaces

    A NOTE FROM OUR

    ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

    'When everyone benefits, a whole community wins.'

    'When I started Shadowpath in 2002, I had no idea of its potential. I approached everyday spaces because I couldn't afford to rent the few regional theatres. That turned out to be the best thing for Shadowpath and now everyday spaces are our signature style of theatre producing. Businesses gain a creative boost and access to new customers, performers get a professional opportunity to work in alternative spaces, the community gets more arts and culture programming and Shadowpath gets connected to community partners and free space! Now that's winning! -Alex Karolyi
