The Department of Theatre is in mourning. Our friend Benjamin Gaillard died yesterday in a road accident that also killed his 10 years old son. Benjamin and his family were travelling in the United States on their way back from vacation. His wife Véronique and his daughter survived the accident and are currently in a Pennsylvania hospital. We do not fear for their lives.
Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre is invited to represent North America at the 15th World Festival of Children's Theatre in Germany in June 2018! U of O Theatre Department's MFA Graduate, Ekaterina Vetrov, brings to life a unique and distinctive immersive theatre piece, Lucid Dreams - a strange world of dreams full of symbols, illusions and grotesque imagery delivered through movement, contemporary dance, and work with masks and objects.
The Société Québécoise d’études théâtrales has awarded the 2017 scholarship to Caroline Gignac, for her thesis proposal entitled Favoriser de nouvelles perspectives d’analyse d’un spectacle de danse contemporaine : l’empathie esthétique in Mille batailles by Louise Lecavalier.
