Outside the March creates unforgettable immersive encounters—redefining the experience of theatre for a new generation of audiences.
Since forming in 2009, we have become one of Canada’s leading immersive theatre companies, with eighteen productions, nine World Premieres, seventeen Canadian Premieres, success with national and international tours and several film adaptations to our credit. We have invited our audiences to play with us in kindergarten classrooms, parade with Queen Elizabeth along the Danforth, tinker in garages, congregate in churches, venture out on a 911 paramedic call, weather the apocalypse in an abandoned adult movie theatre, infuse an old funeral home with love, join us onstage at the Royal Alexandra Theatre and solve puzzles in a time-warped VHS rental store.
As we charge into our second decade, we’re taking that mission from Toronto’s downtown to the entire GTA and beyond. We’ve developed a multi-generational, dedicated audience base and a strong artistic identity—now we’re looking to furnish a new, diverse generation of artistic creators with the tools to immerse their audiences. We want to be the catalyst for a vibrant subculture of immersive theatre creators who see every closed door, every storefront window, every café, park and heritage site as opportunities to amplify the vital narratives of our moment and of our city.
Artistic Internship in Immersive Performance
Intern activities can include but aren’t limited to:
We anticipate our intern will have a deep curiosity about a career in the performing arts: with that in mind, we want to ensure a practical, hands-on approach to learning the ins-and-outs of a mid-size performing arts organization. Theatre is a social, collaborative industry, so we work to provide networking opportunities for interns to get acquainted with the sector’s professionals. We’ll facilitate introductions–Zoom dates–with artists and producers inside and outside OtM’s team.
The majority of the mentorship will take place over Zoom and phone.
Outside the March is located in Toronto, Ontario. The fellowship can be done remotely.
