L’UniThéâtre’s initiatives to develop the continuation of francophone dramaturgy in Alberta.
L'UniThéâtre strives to support our local writers and artsits. In order to ensure the continuation of our community's storytelling, we offer playwrights the chance to participate in La Plume parlante, a playwrighting circle peppered with workshops led by professional artists. From there, we present new works in our public reading series À voix haute, which is the first chance for the writers to hear their work read out loud by professional actors for an audience. Finally, Coup d’œil, play workshopping/lab series, puts new works that are in the final stages of the creative process on their feet to allow the playwrights to see one of many possible staging choices in order to help them continue the editing their work. These three initiatives, all the while supporting our community's artists and writers, equally allow L'UniThéâtre to find local works that can be included in future seasons' programming.
