In 2014, the company began as performance collective Up The Ante. The larger company built up around this to facilitate the breadth of work that we want to achieve. Up The Ante continues to run as the part of UTA Arts CIC. Up The Ante are compelled to do things differently and make playful and refreshing work using collaborative approaches. When you participate in any UTA Arts activity, you are engaging in the beginnings of our collaborative process - Up The Ante is where we follow this process through to a completed performance project.
