Francophone Theatre

How do you put an intuition into words? Name the unnameable? It's impossible to put into words the immense pleasure, the mounting vertigo and the ever-increasing happiness sparked by the prospect of getting (back) on stage. Mani Soleymanlou's first season is an outstretched hand. An invitation to artists from all over the country, to the audience members we love and those we haven’t yet met. An invitation to forge links, to imagine collectively and to redesign our stage. 

On the program: a large-scale production with a cast of 40 performers from the Canadian Francophonie, the latest Michel Tremblay, and a sensitive portrait of Northern communities that combines radio documentary and theatre.
