Magnetic North Theatre Festival is Canada’s premiere national festival of contemporary theatre in English. Like the Magnetic North Pole, the festival shifts location and travels around the country returning to its home base of Ottawa every other year. The festival treats Canadians to excellence in English theatre from every corner of Canada giving us the opportunity to share our stories, interpret our history, and to explore how we see the world.
FESTIVAL MANDATE: To produce a Canadian theatre festival with a national scope that has a strong artistic vision, meets high artistic standards, promotes dissemination of Canadian work through presenters to audiences and increases awareness of Canadian theatre both nationally and internationally amongst artists, audiences, producers and presenters.
