Community Update

January 5, 2023

It has been a brilliant and also unusually busy season here at Prairie Theare Exchange.  Our goal each season is to release a community update at the top of the season and at the close of the season.  Here we are, in January, with our first update for the 2022-23 season.  We are aware that it is behind schedule while also gratefully embracing the opportunity to begin the New Year with news of how this 50th anniversary season has been going so far


We continue to be excited about digital production and what it means for the future of theatre in this country and around the world.  This season we have three digital productions as part of the season.  We also have plans to film Frances Koncan's Space Girl thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.  That filmed production won't appear this season, but we look forward to releasing it to the world very soon.

This season has been thrilling so far.  It has also been full of challenges.  This is a moment where we celebrate the arts in-person.  We also recognize that our industry (and the arts workers who bring it to life) is vulnerable.  We are continuously listening, responding and listening again.  We make plans, while also trying not to become set in our ways.  We know that we need to be as nimble as we were in the height of the pandemic to keep our artists, audiences and artistic practice healthy, safe, and inspired.  We succeed, we fail, we change, and we continuously re-imagine what is and can be possible.  Much like the process of creating theatre, we are trying not to know everything, but rather to discover.  We are grateful for everyone who has helped us and is helping us along the way.  And we promise to do all we can to help Prairie Theatre Exchange see another 50 years of theatre and performing arts.
