The Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui (the CTD’A) champions the creation, production and dissemination of French-language works from Québec and elsewhere in Canada. It continues to be the only space dedicated exclusively to home-grown theatre, as well as one of Montréal’s most important creative venues, providing local playwrights with a stage to speak to, through their art, the social and cultural issues affecting Québec society.
For more than fifty years, the CTD’A has been home to many powerful voices in Québec theatre, including Michel Marc Bouchard, Wajdi Mouawad, Carole Fréchette, and Annick Lefebvre. A space whose mission is to showcase what is being written today, it is instrumental in creating opportunities for local dramatists. The topicality of the CTD’A testifies to the vitality and openness that enable it to be attuned to its society, artists and audiences. Moreover, numerous initiatives targeting gender parity and cultural diversity have recently spurred it on a series of innovative ventures and collaborations.
Since 1968, the CTD’A has staged close to 400 original theatrical works, all to the great delight of the 30,000 spectators who come through its doors every year. Power Corporation is proud to be one of this vital institution’s partners.
