The Open Storefront Project is an initiative of On The Boards Staging Company. The goal of the project is to provide artists with a temporary space in which to create, as well as to bring life to unleased storefront spaces. We partner with retail businesses and building owners to provide the space free-of-charge to artists. We hope that our animation of the different spaces allows the public to see into the process of the arts and to promote the leasable space to potential buyers or renters. With every leasing of the spaces we animate, we feel a lot of pride and are excited to see where we go next.

On this blog we like to feature independent performance happening around Saskatoon. This week I'm excited to tell you about a show that was part of the Short Cut Festival 2016 on it's journey to this full length production. Alex Hartshorn and Christina Persson interview each other about working on this theatre/dance/music piece. They call it a "live art installation".
