The Tale of a Town is a site-specific theatre and media project that is capturing the collective community memory of our country’s main streets, one story at a time, while preserving local heritage and promoting neighbourhood culture.

Touring across Canada in our storymobile (a.k.a recording booth on wheels) we’re gathering stories in small towns and big cities alike through scheduled and impromptu interviews with independent business owners, local heroes, community stakeholders, and neighbourhood residents.  These stories inspire performance installations that take place in site-specific downtown locations created in collaboration with local artists and in partnership with presenting partners from across the country.

This national venture culminated in 2017 in a multi-platform celebration of the country’s main street culture, in commemoration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. 

So far, we’ve interviewed over 3000 Canadians in over 150 communities across the country.
