Les visages du théâtre communautaire francophone à Edmonton entre les années 1970 et 1990: une confusion des genres?

June 10, 2016


Sathya Rao and Larry Gagné investigate the different uses of the notion of “community theatre” in light of the many institutional and economic constraints exerted on Edmonton-based Francophone theatre between 1970 and 1990. Sometimes synonymous with amateur theatre and sometimes overlapping with professional theatre, community theatre is in search of a renewed grassroots identity. !As a result of various circumstances in the early 1990s, community theatre endorses not only a peculiar dramaturgy, but also a new institutional framework.
