MARKING THIS MOMENT

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.

 

The NAC has funded fourteen of Canada’s most innovative theatre companies to create and perform large-scale, new works in response to these challenging times which will be performed outdoors in front of live audiences in various Canadian locations, filmed, and later shared online.

The National Arts Centre Foundation wishes to thank RBC Foundation as Presenting Partner of Grand Acts of Theatre.

Grand Acts of Theatre is made possible thanks to the support from The Jenepher Hooper Fund for Theatre at the National Arts Centre Foundation, established as a result of a generous gift from the estate of Jenepher Margaret Hooper.
