Since our beginning in 1986, Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage has evolved into Canada’s most diverse season of international performance. With a bold curatorial vision, World Stage assembles and presents today’s performance leaders to share and develop Toronto’s understanding of the contemporary.
And we know that we don’t always need to go far to find them. We see Toronto as part of the world — just as the world is part of Toronto. That’s why we work to support the many local artists who are advancing the vocabularies of theatre, dance, performance art and multidisciplinary practice and ensure that Toronto’s innovators are reflected in World Stage programming. That’s why we serve as ambassadors for the local and national performance community when we travel and help artists find resources to keep pushing the boundaries.
We do this because we believe that — even if it takes time — helping artists achieve long-term success is the best way to make art work — for Toronto’s future and the world’s.
