Furturistic Happening

The year is 2042 ...

Is the pandemic finally behind us? Are we going about our lives as if nothing had happened? Are we happily embracing our freedom and putting the episode behind us with big sloppy kisses? Or have we become accustomed to drinking our iced lattes through a straw behind our masks and looking forward to the unveiling of the latest Purell fragrance?

There’s no way to know, because the crystal ball that predicts what 2042 will look like is in the hands of a bunch of Ottawa–Gatineau artists. Each of them has the mission to imagine what 2042 will be like. Anything goes, and we mean anything.

Mani Soleymanlou has created a unifying event that will mark NAC French Theatre’s return to the stage for the 2021–2022 season. From slam to readings to dramatic and musical performances, some 20 artists of all backgrounds await you on stage.

Welcome to the not-so-distant future ...
