Marking this Moment

As the performing arts sector continues to face unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Arts Centre has responded with Grand Acts of Theatre, an initiative to bring Canadian artists and audiences together. Eleven of Canada’s most innovative theatre companies have been engaged to create and perform large-scale, new works in response to these times, which will be performed outdoors in front of live audiences in various Canadian locations, filmed, and later shared online. For more information on Grand Acts of Theatre and the companies involved please visit nac-cna.ca/GrandActsofTheatre.

Trespassers Waltz aims to evoke the tensions of isolation and trespass which are so prevalent in Saskatchewan, where healing settler/Indigenous/newcomer/land relations are at the forefront of any possibility for change. As audiences experience humorous, poignant, and tender conciliations with land, acts of leading and following will become reciprocal ways to reckon with our own trespasses.

Curtain Razors’ Artistic Associates will work alongside interdisciplinary artists who live and work on Treaty 4 & Treaty 6 Territories. Audiences can look forward to commissioned work by Skyler Anderson, Jay Kimball, Pete Kytwayhat, Listen to Dis’, Barbara Meneley, Jeff Morton, Misty Wensel and more!

The National Arts Centre Foundation wishes to thank RBC Foundation as Presenting Partner of Grand Acts of Theatre.

Grand Acts of Theatre is also made possible thanks to the support from The Jenepher Hooper Fund for Theatre at the National Arts Centre Foundation, established as a result of a generous gift from the estate of Jenepher Margaret Hooper.
