Obsidian Theatre Company



A new initiative from Obsidian Theatre

It always amazes me how artistic vision can morph and shift and bring ideas into focus. I often talk about how Obsidian exists to help develop and provide opportunities for theatre artists and this season we are diving deeper to make this an even bigger part of what we do. This multi-pronged approach to networking for young-in-craft artists, sponsorship support for other Black theatres and an exploration into movement creation and theatre, will all be under the Darktown banner.

- Philip Akin Artistic Director

Black Ties

Our upcoming event Darktown: Black Ties is a key part of our mission. It is a bringing together of young-in-craft and professional Black theatre artists from across the nation to chat, connect and eat good food. This year we will be hosting a panel discussion featuring Kevin Hanchard (Orphan Black), Vanessa Sears (Shaw Festival Theatre), Leah-Simone Bowen (Toronto Arts Council) and more!
