Programmed by Brigitte Haentjens and led by incoming artistic director Mani Soleymanlou, NAC French Theatre’s 2021–22 season explores notions of interconnection. To mark the long-awaited return to the stage, nine shows invite spectators on a sensory journey that navigates the border between reality and the imagination.  

Are you ready to be projected into the future with Mani Soleymanlou, lulled by the voice of the bewitching Marie Brassard, disoriented by the stage effects of the creators of White Out, mesmerized by the words of Jonathan Roy, challenged by the vision of Joël Pommerat? Our theatres are just waiting for you to say YES!
