Go Back to Season

Convergence 2018 features the WORLD PREMIERE of a full-length contemporary performance directed by GW Collective Artist AINSLEY HILLYARD.

NOVEMBER 15-17, 2018 at 8:00pm                                             at the Théâtre de la Cité Francophone                                              (8627 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury)

This new work combines text, movement, and soundscape to examine fear as a method of control. Words can be weapons, thoughts can be cages and our peers can become targets. The piece has been created in a collaborative style. While Hillyard is the director, all of the performers have also been creators in their own right.

Friday, November 16th will be a RELAXED PERFORMANCE with ASL INTERPRETATION and will be followed by a TALKBACK led by Taylor Chadwick of What It Is Productions.

Relaxed performances are created to make the audience experience more accessible. This is because formal performance settings demand some specific behaviours from audience members (like sitting still and quietly in the dark for a long time) that can exclude some people. In our relaxed performance setting audience members are invited to make noise, move around, or leave the theatre and return as needed. Low-level audience lighting throughout the performance makes this safer and more possible. A variety of seating options are available. You can use your phones (with sound off please), and you can access ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones to address louder sound levels if this is meaningful to you.
