Relaxed Performance (RP) is an approach to theatre that welcomes everyone and works to make theatre-going accessible. Over the past several years, we have been working to build capacity in the Canadian theatre sector by providing  RP trainings in cities across the country. In collaboration with Bodies in Translation, we have commissioned research to find out the effectiveness, sustainability and impact of the programme. The full report can be dowloaded at the bottom of this page. A summary of the report is coming soon!
