Scapegoat Carnivale



The piece that resonated with me the most in recent years in regards to theatre made by a company connected with Montreal English Theatre is Yev by Scapegoat. I loved how short it was, It felt like a dream that we were going deeper and deeper into. I connected with the isolation of the character and I felt like having a large portion of the piece set in a different language was very clever- as I am sure it resonated with many anglos or recent immigrants living in quebec. There was something raw abouts it that I found really refreshing

 See the film 

What We Choose to Remember features a cast of more than 30 characters, whose families arrived in successive waves of immigration. The oldest families arrived during the period of ‘two solitudes’ when Montreal’s population was more than 50% English. They share firsthand accounts decades of political upheaval. The most recent immigrants arrived believing linguistic conflicts were ancient history.

Our story takes place on the Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki , Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these nations and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters. We also call upon all levels of government to adopt and implement the 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation commission.
