Why Not Theatre 

We are over the moon about our newest partnership with @nightwoodtheat and @qucollective! Now You See Her is an insurrectionary outburst of original music, words and movement that asks: why and how do women allow their power to disappear without a fight? Created and performed by Lisa Karen Cox, Maggie Huculak, Raha Javanfar, Amy Nostbakken, Norah Sadava and Cheyenne Scott - watch for this on stage at @buddiesto October 16-November 4 2018. 📷: @brookewedlock

Last but certainly not least - RISER senior partner @thetheatrecentre is a nationally recognized live-arts incubator that serves as a research and development hub, fostering a culture of innovation by embracing risk and questioning traditional notions of failure and success.

Like so many others in this community, we couldn’t do it without @thetheatrecentre - thank you for another wonderful year. #RISER18
