In January 2024, DaPoPo took a sublet in 2b Theatre’s old space, the Apex. Now, two months later, DaPoPo is renting the building with a flock of other artists and arts organizations and has renamed it The Nest.


Currently, nesters include DaPoPo Theatre, Patchwork Music Therapy, Unnatural Disaster Theatre, Even the Muse, Nolan Natasha, Lindsay Kyte, Blue Acres, Villains Theatre, and Coral Maloney. 


Garry Williams explains:  “We are aiming to keep the rent low, and the space accessible. We are planning some drop-in events – writer’s circle, Music Theory, house concerts, Baby Group – and such to offset the cost.” 


The space boasts a shared kitchenette and board room, five full office spaces, three tiny studios, and a work nook. It is located on Quinpool Road above Citadel Music. 


As they approach their 20th anniversary, DaPoPo is excited to be putting energy back into producing and organizing – and hatching new ideas. “We have been somewhat dormant for the last few years, with many of our original members branching out into family and professional life,” says Williams. 


Like so many others, the company was severely impacted by the changes in the industry during the first three COVID years. This feels like a tentative step towards reinventing the company for another decade. 


On March 30th, 4-8, DaPoPo Theatre is planning an Open House at The Nest, 6068 Quinpool Rd. Admission is free. There will be snacks and refreshments. Donations are encouraged and accepted. (Tax deductible donations can be made through Theatre Nova Scotia's Theatre Partnership Program.) There will be two performance-presentations at 4:30pm & 7pm, respectively. To reserve a seat for either showing, or enquire about space rentals, please contact us at admin@dapopotheatre.com


COVID protocol: The Nest is in a small indoor space. While masking for the event is not mandatory, we will have masks and hand sanitizer on site. We strongly urge anyone who is feeling sick or exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms to stay home. Short of that, we encourage you to mask.
