STO Union has been producing new and internationally acclaimed work since1992. Productions have toured four continents to theatres and festivals and have won multiple awards for its artists, including the Chalmers award and Dora Mavor Moore Award. Based out of Place des Artistes de Farrellton in West Quebec, STO Union’s mandate is to advance the performance culture and art form by:

exploring new  methods in artistic practice and production to produce new, original professional works for the stage and other spaces, including digital spaces;

touring of new works locally, nationally and internationally to share and exchange with audiences and artists from other places, (touring in our context includes digital forms of dissemination) and;

fostering of other artists at all levels – from established through emerging and the yet-to-emerge – through knowledge sharing and exchange opportunities.
