About On the Verge
On the Verge is a live interview series that brings together a panel of established Toronto theatre artists sharing pivotal moments when they found themselves on the verge of making a life-altering decision.
Facilitated by Convergence’s Julie Tepperman, the series was established in 2015, inspired by Julie & Aaron’s experiences teaching at theatre schools and being asked difficult questions, like: “Will I ever be able to be an artist AND have a family?” or “How do I know when it’s time to do something else with my life?”.
Whether you’re an artist or a curious theatre-goer, On the Verge creates space for dialogue and mentorship through the open sharing of stories and experiences that all too often remain undiscussed.
