NAC French Theatre

Offre ado

Francophone Theatre


2020–2021: You had a TOTAL and exclusive romance with your sofa and your computer? Hey, that’s great! 

But now, can you feel the tide turning? It’s time to emerge from your cocoon, breathe in the air of the times, discover amazing creators, and reconnect with the land of the living! 

French Theatre is offering delightful and striking shows for adults and teens alike. There’s something for every personality type: 

Dramatic personalityCher Tchekhov 
Is the theatre world like a dysfunctional clan where everyone fights for their place in the spotlight? The immortal Michel Tremblay exposes the hot-button issues of his creative profession in this fierce and funny play about a family of actors who gather at a country house for a dinner party that will ... go super well? Ha ha—dream on! 

Culture-hungry personality: Aalaapi | ᐋᓛᐱ  
In this performance experience blending radio documentary and theatre, our heartbeats become entwined with those of five engaging Indigenous women from the North. We watch them sewing and playing cards; but above all, we hear their language, their sublime voices and their profound silences. Inspiring echoes of the snowy faraway place that is also our home. 

Socially engaged personality: Cabaret Noir 

When it comes to racial justice, we’re collectively emerging from an overlong blind silence that demands—now, today—that we cross all the bridges that will lead us to the Other. Cabaret Noir is one of those bridges. A bridge that dances, thinks and throws off light! Six performers, improbable cosmonauts in motorcycle helmets, share a stage that becomes, as scene follows scene, a circus ring, a playground, a public square. 

Epic personality: ROME 

Binge-watching an entire TV series, eyes glued to your screen, is so 2020–21. It’s time for a unifying saga, an epic experience … it’s time for ROME! Welcome to a Shakespeare marathon, a spectacular six-hour journey behind the scenes of an empire whose rise and fall, 400 years later, still resonates eerily with our times.
