The one we fear. The one who piques our interest.
Who tells us who we are.
The connection we feel to the Other – this is what unites us.
This season’s productions are chiaroscuros of light and shadow, questioning our individuality versus that of the Other – in terms of our ideas, our values, and our history. Without compromise, these productions create an arena for notions of politics and identity to come together, and hence trace a vibrant portrait of our social fabric in all its contradictions; of the fear of the unknown; of separation and destruction, to renewal.

Théâtre Catapulte’s 2019-2020 season begins this week with the opening of Embrigadés at La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins. The show, from the Quebec City collective Les Pentures, will be presented to a matinee audience of more than 500 teens in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and is part of our school programming. There will be a one-night-only presentation for general audiences, on October 4th 2019 at 7:30pm.
I look forward to seeing you during the 2019-2020 season!
