The Centaur Theatre presents

Portico Project: The Exchange

Sponsored by the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation
Co-created by Julie Tamiko Manning, Eo Sharp, Nalo Soyini Bruce
Directed by Julie Tamiko Manning

Fueled by a desire to reconnect as the theatre reopens its doors after 18 months, The Exchange is a multi-disciplinary celebration of all the ways that performance can challenge and inspire us to stand together and ask the question: Who belongs in this space?

Meet you on the Portico?

The Portico Project livens up rue St-François-Xavier with Centaur’s second outdoor mini-festival. This year’s iteration presents a dynamic 20-minute, multi-disciplinary event created by the Project’s debut curatorial team—Eo Sharp, Julie Tamiko Manning and Nalo Soyini Bruce.

The newly minted Portico Exchange, a playful reference to Centaur’s Montreal Stock Exchange origins, features five unique performers exploring the nature of reciprocation, resulting in the celebration of what we can each bring to the table.
