Remington North

Technical Director, touring & Withrow Park


Remington North is a career Technical Director and Production Manager based out of Toronto, Canada. He derives his professional mandate from the word facilitate via the Latin facile (easily). Making art is hard and Remington endeavours to make it easier for those working through their craft. Having opened two of Toronto’s prominent mid-sized venues, The Theatre Centre and Crow's Theatre, Remington strives to represent not just the technical labourers that make this art possible but the houses they take place in. Remington has worked with J Mar Electric, Necessary Angel, Crow's Theatre, The Theatre Centre, Volcano Theatre, YES! Theatre, Why Not Theatre, Against the Grain, and many other companies in the GTA. He's pleased to be here with Dusk Dances and looking forward to the future offerings of Live Performance in Canada.

Chin Palipane (he/him) is a Toronto-based Theatre Artist, Technician, and Lighting Designer. He is a proud member of Coyote Collective and the current TD of The Assembly Theatre. When not working a plethora of gigs or designing shows, he can be found reading or consuming far too much Netflix with Durzo. He absolutely adores breakfast at non-breakfast times and a good cup of coffee/tea. He is thrilled to be working with Dusk Dances again!
