Artistic Director’s Message
The Satellite Season: Canadian Stories in Orbit
The world as we know it has changed. It continues to change, and theatre is no different. Although we can’t gather the way we are used to, Canadian stories are resilient and enduring. As theatre artists, we are trained to respond to challenges with opportunities, with new ways of sharing, shaping, and receiving stories. At the heart of Factory Theatre’s all-digital season is our commitment to storytelling: no matter how it’s told, a good, compelling story will always transform, heal, reconcile, and illuminate.
This season, you may not be able to be with us in our home at Adelaide and Bathurst, but we’re making damn sure that the Factory you know and love comes to you. And thanks to the support of the TD Bank Group, admission for our 20/21 digital season is entirely free of charge so that anyone across the country and beyond can access our programming amid the challenges presented by COVID-19.
Whether live streamed or podcasted, we’re preparing for this orbit around the sun and asking you to invite us into your homes to bring you the full spectrum of Canadian stories. Until we can connect again in the flesh, let us come to you. This is Factory’s 20/21 Satellite Season: Canadian Stories in Orbit.
See you online,
Nina Lee Aquino, Artistic Director
