until the next breath

Edmonton, AB

In person Theatre

A Catalyst Theatre Production Breath. It begins and ends our lives, and in-between, it sustains us, as we reach out to connect – to touch, and be touched, by others. But what happens in the face of a virus that isolates us, deprives us of touch, and threatens to steal our breath away? In this pause between inhalation and exhalation – afloat between what was and what will be – how do we take our next breath? How do we live? How do we thrive? Fifty performers join Catalyst Theatre on a musical journey that invites audience members to breathe through fear and uncertainty and dance into the beautiful unknown. Exact time and location of this event to be confirmed. Please check link for updates. Please note performance time is indicated in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Please adjust for your local time zone. 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. This event will be photographed and recorded, with excerpts being presented online at a later date, so we are advising all attendees that by attending the event, individuals are deemed to consent to the recording of their image and use of their image in connection with recordings and photographs of the event, which may be published.

National Arts Centre & Catalyst Theatre

The National Arts Centre raised its curtains for the first time in 1969. A bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for Canada’s most creative artists, the NAC strives to be artistically adventurous in each of its programming streams — the NAC Orchestra, Dance, English Theatre, French Theatre, Indigenous Theatre and NAC Presents. The Centre’s national role is reflected in its motto: “Canada is our Stage.” The NAC collaborates with artists and arts organizations across the country, acts as a catalyst for performance; invests in ambitious new works by artists and arts organizations nation-wide; and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada. Situated on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabe nation, the NAC is accessible and welcoming to all, and offers a variety of free programming and events.
