This is a free online event.

As we edge closer to a new normal, a powerful sense of hope is surging. To celebrate each step we take, the National Arts Centre English Theatre is bringing together some of the country’s most inventive artists to create and perform innovative new works with Grand Acts of Great Hope. These acts will inspire and embolden audiences for the brave new world facing us post-pandemic.


Performed safely in front of local audiences and later shared online, these works will help prepare us for the safe return when audiences and artists can once again share space together. Grand Acts of Great Hope was co-curated by NAC English Theatre Artistic Jillian Keiley and Boca del Lupo Artistic Director Sherry J Yoon.

One Yellow Rabbit's Denise Clarke and The Shakespeare Company's Haysam Kadri will co-direct with Kunji Ikeda as rehearsal and training director nine beautifulyoungartists as they perform to an original soundscape composed by Allison Lynch; moving in the light and shadow of the forest and meadow, portraying cheeky, smart, funny and tender characters; lovers falling in love, dreamers dreaming and mischief makers making mischief.
