This evening event will be focused on the thoughts expressed by visitors to the exhibition “How long does it take for one voice to reach another?” It will be almost as if you were seeing it again, but through the eyes of others! Playwright Annabel Soutar, co-founder of Porte Parole, will present a collage of selections from their recorded comments. Alongside her on stage will be an actor lending his or her voice, warmth and feeling to a performance of those excerpts. In this way you will learn about both the mechanisms of documentary theatre and the dramaturgical work that characterizes Porte Parole productions. The evening will end with an audience discussion with the artists.

Annabel Soutar

In 2000, Montreal-based playwright and producer Annabel Soutar, together with actor Alex Ivanovici, founded Port Parole Productions and she has been at the helm of its artistic direction since then. She has written and helped create some fifteen documentary plays, including L’Assemblée / The Assembly, J’aime Hydro, Tout inclus, Fredy, Grains / Seeds and Le partage des eaux / The Watershed.
