Showcasing Quebec theatre for young audiences

FOCUS Québec is a unifying event held every two years to highlight Quebec theatre for young audiences among international, Quebec and Canadian theatre-presenting organizations. By offering an exceptional performance space and by promoting exchanges and meetings, the event contributes to the artistic outreach of Quebec companies at both the national and international levels. FOCUS Québec was initiated in 2012 by the Maison Théâtre, L’Arrière Scène, the Théâtre jeunesse Les Gros Becs and Les Coups de Théâtre.

FOCUS Québec was organized this year in association with Parcours Danse Satellite.

PANEL: The portrait and future of international programming from a Quebec perspective

The performing arts community for young audiences needs to reflect on the issues and changes that will inevitably occur in international and intercontinental programming. What are the reasons today for wanting to be active on the international stage? What will be the long-term impacts of the pandemic? What are the inspiring models and promising formats for international projects? From an intergenerational perspective, this panel of presenters, artists, and an agent will try to bring out concrete ideas to advance the reflection towards sustainable changes.

Content and facilitation: 

  • Esther Charron, Founder of Pôles magnétiques, art and culture and Arts Administration professor at Bishop’s University.
