Green Thumb Theatre was founded in 1975 to develop original Canadian plays for young audiences. After more than 35 years, Green Thumb Theatre is still at the forefront of the Theatre in Education movement, using the emotional impact of live performance to educate and empower young people. Green Thumb Theatre creates and produces plays that explore social issues relevant to the lives of children, youth and young adults. We provide theatre that celebrates the language and stories of today’s generation and culture to stimulate empathy, debate and critical thinking.
Winners of the Grand Prize and Audience Prize at the 2014 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition, Montreal-based ensemble Infusion Baroque seeks to draw a new audience to early music by integrating chamber music performance and other artistic media. Infusion’s innovative programming includes Musique en couleur, featuring live painting by visual artist Sylvia Chan; and Rebels and Rivalry, based on scandalous stories from the lives of the great composers. Past projects include L’Arte di Corelli, featuring a slide slow of baroque visual art inspired by the composer’s extensive collection of paintings; and Who Killed Leclair?, an interactive murder mystery soirée based on the unsolved murder of the famous composer. Upcoming events include engagements with the Montreal Baroque Festival, Boston Early Music Fringe Festival, San Fransisco Early Music Society, Houston Early Music Festival, Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Early Music Now (Milwaukee), Renaissance & Baroque (Pittsburgh) and Early Music Guild (Seattle).
