Are you ready to push some boundaries and take a leap into the unknown?

STAB originated in 1995 from BATS Theatre’s desire to initiate a commission
that allowed theatre artists to experiment in a supportive environment.

In 2020, BATS has a total pool of $80,000 to commission:

●  One major STAB production of between $50,000 and $65,000

●  One STAB LAB of between $10,000 – $15,000

A​ ​small portion of major STAB commission money will be provided to each
selected company to develop their pitch. The amount, up to $500, can be
used to support hard costs incurred (receipts must be provided) and
remuneration for practitioners involved. In addition, pitching companies will
receive free rehearsal time, to be allocated at BATS’ discretion and subject
to availability, in the lead up to the scheduled pitch date.
