You’ve heard of the Montreal English Theatre Awards, established in 2012? The peer-juried METAs celebrate exceptional artistic work in Montreal’s English theatre, in order to increase visibility of professional and emerging English theatre artists and companies and promote a critical discourse about theatre among Montreal’s artists and the community at large. (Please read their “Training Your Critical Eye” brochure.) For its seventh annual edition, the META jury will award 17 awards, including the new Outstanding Choreography and/or Movement Direction Award, two honorary awards and a community award. The ceremony, which will take place on Nov. 3 at the Monument-National’s Salle Ludger-Duvernay, will be directed by Cristina Cugliandro and written by and hosted by Tatyana Olal with two-time nominee Patrick Émmanuel Abellard. Party guaranteed.

After celebrating last year the company’s 50th anniversary, a wind of change is moving through the only bilingual Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) in Canada: Youtheatre. The new artistic duo Véronique Bossé and Jeremy Segal take the wheel of Quebec’s oldest theatre for young audiences. Open to new interdisciplinary forms and sharp story-telling, the pair is about to launch a series of workshops around Molecular Futures, the company’s coming children’s premiere.
