Theatre Projects Manitoba (TPM) is located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg on Treaty One Territory, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. Settlers and Indigenous people share this covenant and all are invited to enter into this agreement which sets out the rights, responsibilities and right relationships between our nations.
Manitoba is a region of isolation, and for thousands of years, a meeting place. These lands also hold the territory of Treaties Two, Three, Four and Five and we gratefully acknowledge the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene and Métis Peoples for their stewardship of the lands and waters that support and sustain life on these plains, forests, and tundra. We are grateful for all of the knowledge keepers, storytellers, artists and makers who host us on this land.
In this place, the cities, villages, and Territories of Manitoba, TPM strives to create a point of synergy where art and community meet; generating artistic experiences that view this world through a passionate, fearless lens.
The theatre we do is intimate, provocative, and artistically driven. It is our strong belief that professional theatre, created in partnership with a community and its artists, can inspire awe, wonder, and meaningful discourse. We all prosper when the community develops the artistry and compassion of its citizens by providing a forum for their stories. Our goal is to continue to build cultural narratives that speak to and for all the people in our community.
Formed in 1990, this season TPM celebrates its 30th anniversary.
