Canada’s Magnetic North Theatre Festival presents the very best in Canadian touring theatre, and showcases Canadian theatre that shares our stories, interprets our history, and explores how we as Canadians see the world. Their goal is to provide theatre that moves, and moves you. Magnetic North is Canada’s only national festival of touring theatre, and is unique in its mandate of moving to a new host community from their home base of Ottawa every second year.
For 2014, Canada’s Magnetic North Theatre Festival is coming to Halifax and Dartmouth from June 19-29, 2014 and is partnering with Eastern Front Theatre’s Stages Festival. Magnetic North will focus on bringing the best touring theatre from across Canada while the Stages Festival will showcase the work of theatre artists from the Atlantic provinces. Together, we will put Halifax on the national theatre map!
