2022

Influenced by the times, Le Diamant’s Fall 2022 programming includes diverse artistic practices: circus, theatre and multidisciplinary arts. With a world premiere, an exclusive, and a debut, the shows align with Le Diamant’s mission: to help audiences discover theatricality in all its forms. 

“Numerous productions presented at Le Diamant are at the crossroads between disciplines and have a powerful multidisciplinary language. This fall is no exception.”

Robert Lepage, artistic director of Le Diamant
