Season 19/20 

Our ethos this season is about revisiting and redeveloping past works to give them the full production they deserve. 

You'll find works that explore mime and philosophy, physical comedy, experimental music, some great training opportunities and more.

Please join us as we continue to explore the human condition through our poetic theatre of gesture.

Call For Submissions: General Auditions for Bad New Days

Deadline: Friday January 24th, 2020


Bad New Days is committed to inclusive casting, and we encourage submissions from artists who self-identify as members of under-represented communities.

Bad New Days is holding General Auditions seeking performers for upcoming projects in 2020 and 2021.


Lead by Artistic Director Adam Paolozza and Creative Producer Victor Pokinko, Bad New Days has established a unique presence in Canadian theatre since 2017, creating visually bold and physically innovative performances that explore the complexity of the human condition through a volatile blend of lightness and gravity, drawing from the theatrical traditions of the past and re-imagining them in a contemporary aesthetic context.

We have several new projects in development and we're looking to meet some fresh faces and make connections with potential new collaborators.

This audition is open to dancers, actors, puppeteers and even musicians who are interested in using their body in interesting ways.

To submit, send a headshot and resume to by Friday January 24th, 2020.
Auditions will be held January 30th, 2020 at 918 Bathurst Cultural Centre.

Only those selected for an audition will be contacted. Please outline any musical talents, odd skills, and physical theatre training (mask, clown, dance, etc.).

And we're happy to announce...
