In light of our milestone 40th season and responding to the need for our community and our artists to keep engaged in the work, we are thrilled to unveil Espace Geordie – our new creative space!
Located in the historic Little Italy, Espace Geordie will serve our company and the community through a space that supports artistic development. It is equipped with live-streaming capacity (including film equipment) to ensure that our audiences can enjoy the most immediate and “live” experience we can offer without the risk of jeopardizing health.
Espace Geordie is ideal whether you’re looking for a rehearsal space or a place from which you can broadcast your performance.
Geordie has been working with a Health and Safety Officer to establish protocols that allow for safe rehearsal and performance practices. Artists are expected to follow these protocols while using the space. These include:
Geordie Theatre is located on the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki , Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these communities and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters – caring for it and calling it home. We are honoured and privileged to share stories on this land.
We wish to also acknowledge that we are grateful to those seeking sustainable solutions to our global climate crisis, so that we may continue to inspire and challenge our audiences near and far.
