We are committed to multiethnic (as opposed to color-blind) casting.

Your support is critical to fulfill our mission and secure our future. We must raise at a least third of our revenues in addition to government support and ticket sales to deliver our program and grow.


An artist must push the boundaries, worry authorities, question existing notions of morality, question what is handed down to them by the status-quo, raise the voice that needs to be raised, and do so with artistic beauty and imagination.

 

FEATURED

 

THE REFUGEE HOTEL
Oct. 23 to Nov 13, 2016
at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts

 
by Carmen Aguirre.
Directed by Paulina Abarca-Cantin

 
Award-winning writer Carmen Aguirre crafts a dark comedy that poignantly lays bare the journey that victims and survivors of political oppression continue to experience everywhere: the terror of persecution; arrest and torture; the exhausted elation of the escape; the trauma of learning to love and live again with the losses and scars of the past; the irrational guilt of the survivor – and the challenge navigating a new country with new ways to fulfill the hope of building a future.

While chronicling the true story of hundreds of thousands of Chileans who resettled across Canada and around the globe, The Refugee Hotel explores Canada’s ability to accept, support and embrace refugees as new citizens.
