The RBC Chrysalis Project for 2020/21 was reimagined in partnership with Prime Mover Theatre Company. Supported by the RBC Emerging Artist Program, the 2020-21 RBC Chrysalis Project for the Artistic Director Internship was designated exclusively for emerging IBPOC arts leaders.

Neptune Theatre is located on sacred land that has been the site of human activity since time immemorial. We are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq, and we acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

As artists, we are grateful to work and build community here. As stewards of culture, we are in the process of learning more about how our company can improve our relations with Indigenous People and uphold the values of collaboration and inclusivity in all that we do.
