What guides the Group of 5+?
We believe a shared space and the resulting collective ecosystem will expand the boundaries of theatrical creation.
The vision for Group of 5+ is to sustain the development and presence of professional English-language theatre in the Québec and Montreal arts landscape. The collective would galvanize exchange and the sharing of resources for its members- both past and present-with an aim to strengthen the English-language minority community and expand upon the scope, inclusivity and vibrancy of Québecois theatre.
The Group of 5+ is guided by the following five principles:
1. BEING LEADERS in the community
2. BUILDING a collective infrastructure
3. SECURING a foundation for English-language theatre in Montréal
4. PROMOTING exchange and cooperation between artists
5. EXPERIMENTING with new technologies
