#CdnCult Times; Volume 1, Edition 2


This week, contributors from Vancouver, Saskatoon and (nominally) Ottawa approach different questions with regards to a National Culture. These pieces are integrally related to last week’s edition, which explored the concepts that surround A National Theatre.

Our second edition asks questions about identity, history, culture and in some cases how theatre can work to alter and illuminate these relationships. As a unit, they reject the notion that we are post-anything, but that this need not be an impediment to understanding or illumination.
