Theatre Junction GRAND announces 2010/11 Anniversary Season!

The 2010/11 Season marks beginning of the Grand Theatre’s 100th Anniversary and Theatre Junction’s 20th Anniversary.

Theatre Junction GRAND – Calgary’s culturehouse of contemporary live art, will present new works from around the world including a new creation by artistic director Mark Lawes and the Resident Company of Artists, who recently embarked on their first tour as part of World Stage at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. The 2010/11 Season marks a major juncture in the organization’s and Calgary’s collective history where two great landmarks in art and culture will be celebrated and reflected upon.

The 2010/11 Season represents a multiplicity of viewpoints from leading artists in the fields of contemporary theatre, dance and music. Each one pushes the boundaries of their discipline, to move beyond the surface appearance and to ask: what is the potential of the artist to re-invent their medium? and, ultimately, what is the potential of the spectator to re-invent the world in which they are living?

Artistic Director Mark Lawes notes, “This Season represents an important crossroad and a ‘junction’ in our history with that of the city of Calgary and the historic Grand Theatre, our home since 2006, as we create conversations around art and culture in our city…… today, tomorrow and in the future.”
