Théâtre français de Toronto invites you

2024 Fundraising Gala

Duration: The event starts at 6:30 p.m.

Come and celebrate 56th artistic season with an exclusive performance on Wednesday, June 19, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. at the TfT Studio. It's a great opportunity to celebrate another season together, to meet up in our newly renovated offices, and to raise funds to support our projects while enjoying a unique theatrical experience!

The evening will feature Nombre, an unusual participatory theatrical work. At the start of the experience, spectators are given simple instructions. Thanks to an ingenious system of numbers, they are quickly plunged into the heart of a show in which they are both the inspiration and the main actors. Guided from a distance by invisible game masters, a thrilling story emerges – their story! Adapted from the original production by the Alpha Charlie Kilo collective (Quebec), Nombre reminds us of the exquisite singularity of human exchange and the importance that a simple encounter can have in our lives. A creation centered on the themes of inter-connectivity and encounters, offering a singular human and interactive experience*.

The show will be followed by a "wine and cheese" and sweet bites, to delight your taste buds with local products while spending a convivial moment. You'll be able to bid on prizes of varying values ahead of the event, since the auction will be available online and will close on the evening of the gala.

The entire TfT team looks forward to welcoming you to this fundraising event!

Intrigued by the show Nombre? To find out a little more, check out the description by Théâtre Catapulte, which adapted this show. TfT should have presented this production to general audiences during the 2019-2020 season, but the pandemic decided otherwise. Nombre is only presented in TfT's school programming, so you'll have the privilege of experiencing a theatre moment that the general public won't have access to in our programming!
