    An interactive Experience for All Ages!

     
    Join us for a mega-game of collaboration, competition, and potential Utopia. New Societies draws together the forms of a strategic board game and a theatrical narrative, all shaped by the choices you make as you play. This new interactive digital performance has been a hit with audiences of all ages in cities across Canada. Join us from your home - as a single player, with kids, or with a partner (any combination is possible!) - for the first Toronto edition of New Societies

     

    “Re:Current Theatre has created an experience that is as immersive as it is interactive.”

    Kingston Theatre Alliance, Steph Fung

     

    “The best online experience since the beginning of the pandemic, and even overall and before.”

    —Audience

     

    Guided by a set of facilitators, you’ll be placed in groups over Zoom to compete against or collaborate with other players in order to build your ideal society. Be careful, because as your choices shape the direction of your group, there are seven other societies also creating an ever growing and responsive landscape.

    Filled with humour and levity, New Societies is a playful challenge to reflect on how we operate within our current world, while giving players the opportunity to be the catalysts in crafting a better one.

    For ages 10+
