Special Announcements

New Executive Director: Kira Allen!

As we enter into this next phase at bcurrent, we are excited to announce that Kira Allen will be joining the leadership team as Executive Director. Kira brings significant performing arts experience, operational experience and a personal relationship to bcurrent as a graduate of our bcHub program.

Introduced to the magic of theatre and the arts at a young age, Kira is an arts administrator who is drawn to storytelling in all its myriad forms. Kira has a long-time love of learning - when not working, you can often find her researching, reading, or taking a course to explore new things. She has a degree in Drama from the University of Toronto, a diploma from the Canadian College of Performing Arts, and a certification in Finance and Accounting from Toronto Metropolitan University. Kira specializes in systems and process improvement and is on the board of Mural Routes.

Welcome Kira to bcurrent. On behalf of the Board of Directors and all of the staff, we welcome you and look forward to working with you on taking bcurrent to even greater heights in the near future.

A statement from Kira:

"As a graduate of the bcHUB training program, b current holds a special place in my heart as one of the first theatre companies I worked with after I graduated from theatre school. It is a privilege to join an organization with an incredible history of creating daring and groundbreaking theatre productions, nurturing artists, and connecting audiences to stories that reflect diverse lived experiences. I feel honoured to work alongside Marcel, the board, and the entire b current team as we build on the legacy of those who came before us."



b current Performing Arts splashed onto the scene in 1991, when ahdri zhina mandiela founded the company in Toronto. Since inception, b current has developed scores of internationally celebrated artists and their works, with a focus always on engaging the community and creating space for diverse voices to be heard.
