Edge of the Sky is a new and innovative company whose mission is to promote, encourage, and nurture emerging Canadian artists and their work. Through groundbreaking productions, young artist training, management programs, and residencies where writers can bring their work to fruition. Edge of the Sky Theatre embraces the ever-changing and wonderfully diverse culture of Toronto.
In recent years, our company has developed partnerships with many of Toronto’s leading artistic forces. We created the now annual Teen Fringe program with the Toronto Fringe Festival. We’ve developed a youth writing initiative with Soulpepper Theatre Company. As well as, mentored emerging performers for productions with Outside the March and The Musical Stage Company. Most recently, we have begun a young artists management initiative. This helps empower and train emerging artists, as they navigate their transition from school to the industry.
The foundation of this new and energetic company is Canada’s young people. Their diverse perspectives will transform our theatre landscape in the years to come. We work with professional artists to raise these powerful and disparate youth voices. Becoming a strong and clear focus of enormous breadth, like the horizon at the edge of the sky.
