In the spotlight at PTC:
A conversation between PTC’s Dramaturg, Creative Engagement – Joanna Garfinkel and Fringe New Play Prize Winners JK JK, Jenny Larson and khattieQ, about the making of Catalina La O presenta: Ahora Conmigo in a constantly changing world.
A tribute to Indigenous artist, actor, advocate, poet, and playwright, Taran Kootenhayoo, who passed away suddenly on New Year’s Eve 2020.
Playwright Pedro Chamale invites you into the test kitchen of his new work, which highlights the unseen people who plant, tend and harvest our food. This live-streamed event is part cooking show, part “kitchen table talk” with special guests who explore the fallout from our reliance on the exploitation of migrant workers to put food on Canadian tables and the roles artist might play in making change. Join us, we have saved you a seat at our table!
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Join the conversation with award-winning documentary filmmaker Min Sook Lee at Unscripted: Made in Canada . Lee’s most recent feature, "Migrant Dreams" tells the undertold story of migrant workers struggling against Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) that treats foreign workers as modern-day indentured labourers. In 2017, "Migrant Dreams" was awarded Best Labour Documentary by the Canadian Journalists Association and garnered the prestigious Canadian Hillman Prize which honours journalists whose work identifies important social and economic issues in Canada. .
