STO Union’s productions have toured to different festivals and theatres around the world since the presentation of the 2000 creation Recent Experiences at the 2001 Festival de Théâtre des Amériques (now FTA) in Montreal.
The digital disruption, however, has changed the nature of touring, as it offers multiple other ways for people to access and participate in arts and culture.
What does it mean to tour, in the new Cyber-space and traditional Physical-space worlds? Certainly opportunities are there, as now there are not one, but two spaces to explore. Managing these new spaces and creating meaningful links between them is a work in progress that we continue to explore.
Managing these new spaces also means finding ways of lessening their impact on the environment.
What does it mean to tour ethically? We have made this question a priority for the company and we hope to share with you what has come out of this goal over the next year.
