Join us in Celebrating the 2020 World Theatre Day!
The Playwrights Guild of Canada (PGC) invites all Canadians to celebrate World Theatre Day (March 27th, 2020). PGC, together with its partners the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT) and l’Association des théâtres francophones du Canada (ATFC) invites Canadians to join in and experience the joy – and power – of theatre. Every year a messenger is selected from Canada as an ambassador of Canadian theatre. This year’s messenger is Geneviève Pelletier, a Canadian actress and director from Winnipeg. Since 2012, she has been at the helm of the artistic direction of Théâtre Cercle Molière, which in 2018 celebrated its 93rd anniversary as the country’s oldest theatre company. She is interested in the crossroads of cultures and the multiple possibilities opening up in this world that is becoming smaller and smaller, creating fertile and complex spaces for creation. In her message, Geneviève asks theatre-makers to work together to “transform the stage into a world of echoes, a world where laughter, pain, brutality, gentleness and complexity can all spring forth.”
