This past January, the NAC was thrilled to announce Nina Lee Aquino as the incoming Artistic Director for English Theatre. Nina is an award-winning Filipino-Canadian director and dramaturg who has tirelessly advocated for the representation and flourishing of IBPoC voices in Canadian theatre. In addition to a decade as Artistic Director of Factory Theatre in Toronto, Nina is the founding Artistic Director of fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre Company and former Artistic Director of Cahoots Theatre.
As she now begins her time with the NAC, Nina speaks of her love of the arts, her passions about theatre and her feelings about being in the Babs Asper Theatre for the first time.
We invite you to come along with Nina as she starts her new journey with English Theatre.
