A spontaneously-created socially-distanced episodic series of bilingual short plays
En pointe follows the encounters and adventures of interconnected characters living in a working-class neighborhood amid unprecedented world crisis. Emerging from their homes after a prolonged quarantine during a global pandemic, they seek human contact, purpose, and a sense of belonging. From the pressure-cooker of isolation to adapting and resisting to a neighbourhood transformed by gentrification, can their individual hopes, fears, dreams lead to collective change and connection?
Sunday, September 27th, 3PM
A new episode in the series will be presented each week in August and September at a secret outdoor location in Pointe-Saint-Charles – to be revealed by email and social media just a few hours before the performance. Physically distanced and yet immersed in the world of the play, audiences will enjoy a unique theatrical experience imaginatively adapted to the unprecedented realities and restrictions of our times.
