Abstract: Intercultural Competence (IC) is a term (among a myriad of similar terms) used to describe the ability to contribute to “…improving human interactions across difference, whether within a society (differences due to age, gender, religion, socio-economic status, political affiliation, ethnicity, and so on) or across borders” (Deardorff, 2019, p.5). From a developmental perspective, this capacity can be described by certain attitudes, conditions and capabilities along a continuum of expertise. By examining relationship patterns through the lens of Bennett’s Developmental Measure of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS), and applying Hammer’s psychometric measurement tool, the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), this inquiry takes a close look at the collective which encircles a renowned professional theatre company that is dedicated to intercultural practices and social justice-oriented community engagement in Canada. This qualitative constructivist approach examines how IC was apparent within the social network of MT Space during their 2019-20 artistic season.
