BTW’s 40th anniversary Birthday Bacchanal will be on June 2, 7:30 p.m. at UQAM, 200 Sherbrooke West.
The evening includes live music & the DJ stylings by Chimwemwe Miller, free Bacchanal Rum Punch, rum tastings, wine tastings by Vignoble les Diurnes, Caribbean inspired food & dessert, door prizes and dancing! Best of all we will have live theatre from BTW’s past presented by BTW’s board! We will also unveil our brand new 41st anniversary season.
All proceeds go towards next year’s 41st anniversary season. Black Theatre Workshop is the oldest Black theatre company in Canada thanks to continued commitments to artistic excellence, to social relevance, to audiences and to the company’s ability to adapt as a self-renewing arts organization. Since becoming a fully professional company, BTW has been involved in spoken-word and innovative performance work, in addition to community-based work, plays by established Black and non-black playwrights, and commercially-viable productions. Our works are presented primarily in English, occasionally in French, and we have toured inside and outside of Québec.
