The Green

We named our downtown studio ‘The Green’ in honour of our dear friend, mentor and wild man, Michael Green.

We proudly name our creative space The Green in memory of Michael, to honour his passion for performance and community, and in celebration of his humour and spirit.
The Green is our home for continued development of new work, as well as a place for our community, our peers and inspired folks to conspire, develop work, host events, perform and carry on with wild creative abandon.
Looking for a place to rehearse, workshop an idea, hold an intimate performance, or have a creative meeting?
