Je me souviens - I Remember
Montréal, Québec, Canada
July 30 - August 2, 2015
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel
Québec’s simple but provocative motto, which is not without controversy over interpretation, caught our imagination — both metaphorically and geographically. It invokes thoughts of remembering — remembering theatre at its best, when its immediacy and humanness is embraced, remembering our past and how it points to the future, and remembering our power to instigate change.
As most of our members will cross the national border of Canada and the provincial border of Québec — which is recognized as a nation within Canada, and onto territory claimed by the First Nations Iroquois people, “Je me souviens” can be defined by considerations of place as well. Issues of country/isolation/assimilation that began in Phoenix, as well as acts of revolt/revolution, quiet and otherwise, give rise to consideration of the silences, the unsaid, the gestures, the sub-text, the dangers, the misunderstandings, the non-discursive in the “in-between” terrain between cultures, countries, and constituencies in Canada and beyond. Building on this, we can also embrace inter/trans-national and inter/trans-cultural exchanges in performance texts, process, or production.
