This is a fantastic festival of local, national and international work that will take place this Fall in Kitchener.

Announcing the Lineup for IMPACT 21!

This year’s festival launch was unlike any other as we shifted online to present the lineup for our first-ever hybrid in person and online IMPACT 21 festival. We welcomed a record number of attendees to our virtual brunch table who shared in our excitement of IMPACT’s biennial return. You can rewatch the launch event here.
Introducing IMPACT 21
Festival Launch Trailer
Theatre is here. Both virtually and in the community, we present 12 days of thought-provoking and immensely creative theatre with brilliant performances from all over the world. With 4 International, 4 National, and 6 Local works, we invite you to join us from September 28 to October 9, 2021, for theatre that challenges, inspires, and connects.

Industry Conference: How Do We Begin Again?  What if we brought everything back to relationship, and stripped away titles but respected and honoured lived experiences―in ourselves and in each other? What if we could forge connections not out of necessity, but to truly understand one another and build a bridge? 

This year’s IMPACT Co-Instigators are devising an experiment to explore these concepts during the festival. Industry professionals from a range of perspectives will be invited to participate in an exchange that will involve documenting the journey of a relationship stripped of titles, centering lived experiences, and bridging gaps of awareness. We invite you to join us as a witness, as an Instigator, or as someone looking to shift the sector one person at a time.

IMPACT Festival Bar – “Face to Face” 
With the help of our friends at TWB Co-operative Brewing, we will be hosting a pop-up outdoor Festival Bar, equipped with a variety of beverages and food trucks, open every night of the festival. Wrap up a night of theatre with good drinks, good food, and great conversation! 
For those unable to join in person, we invite you to unwind with us at our virtual Festival Bar where you can pour yourself a virtual drink and mingle with friends and colleagues from near and afar. Our virtual bar enables you to have close-knit conversations and pop in and out as you desire. 
Neruda Closing Night Street Party
As per tradition, MT Space will be partnering with sister organization Neruda Arts to host the IMPACT 21 Closing Night Party! Expect great live music, good hospitality, and the company of old and new friends made throughout the festival. This night will be the celebration of theatre, music, and art that we all need. 

Stay tuned for details!
