How to FOLDA


FOLDA’s programming is structured to support artists creating theatre in a digital age. We borrow an iterative model from software design, presenting work at three stages of development:

ALPHA: Performances in their earliest stages, ready for internal testing, but require audience feedback to spark the next stage of development.

BETA: Performances ready for public testing to refine the audience experience.

GO: Performances ready for production release. Audience input contributes to improvements and bug fixes just like your favourite app.

To see our iterative model in practice, check out the Incubator Page.


Tickets range from FREE to $25, with concession pricing available for those who need.

**NEW THIS YEAR**: In 2024, we are introducing JOINT TICKETS that allow you access to two FOLDA presentations with just one ticket. See the individual event pages for SmartSmart, Mash Up, LUCY AI , and HORIZON 360º for details.
