Drawing from site-specific theatre, this walking tour performance collages senses, thoughts, observations, and memories to acknowledge subjectivity, interpretation and the experience of space.


The Neighbourhood Theatre is a course that takes an interdisciplinary, “hands-on,” place-based approach to exploring many of the ethical and practical considerations facing artists and others wishing to work “in residence” with community partners. It’s a course about how theatre artists, oral historians, documentary media artists, community workers, and others interested in social innovation, animation and activism might meet and explore social change within Montreal neighbourhoods.

 

The Right to the City project focuses on discovering the community of Pointe St-Charles through the lens of oral history, theatre, art education, and urbanism.
