Message From the Artistic Director (2019-2020)

We inhabit landscapes; they inhabit us. Landscapes live in the eye of the beholder. They offer their unique perspectives on the world. New points of view bring new frames of mind. Whether the horizon is of hills or spruce, of promise or perplexity, the landscape beckons, inspires and gives meaning to our presence.

Theatre is like that, too.

Each in its own way, our season’s productions proffer the beauty and mystery of our natural and social world. You will lose yourself in immensity to experience liberty. You will tower over tininess to sense the scope of boundless dreams. You will experience fascinating new forms of dramatic expression. You will feel the familiarity of unfamiliar places. Our season is an album of worldviews that come alive before you and within you.

Our byword this year is “enter the landscape.” It may be strange or familiar, oceanic or Nordic, luminous or mysterious, enchanting or troubling, dreamlike or playful. But without fail, it will be moving and inspiring.

Open your eyes to our world. What you’ll see is yourself.

Marie-Pierre Proulx
