Welcome to the inaugural edition of the #CdnCult Times.
Each Monday Tuesday, #CdnCult Times will publish a new set of posts about Canadian culture, theatre and the internet. Meanwhile, the tweet streams below will be constantly updated with the latest tweets tagged #cdncult and #cdntheatrethrowback.
In this week’s edition, we jump right into the core question that drove us to create this internetspace: Is it possible to have a National Theatre in Canada?
Through Sasha Kovac’s Theatre History class at Ryerson University, our Geographic Correspondents from West/North/East, and Sarah Garton Stanley and myself on how and why this space exists – we touch on the difficulties and possibilities of what a National Theatre means in a massive and diverse place during a digital age that changes the context and limitations of geography.
