Differences / The Clash (2009-2011)
This tour of shows, produced by the Ateliers l'Aquarium et le Globe and subsidized by the Canada Council for the Arts, addressed the issue of the clash of differences in our society. In this context, Promito Playback collaborated on the second part of the show to initiate a dialogue with the spectators.
“No more Bullying” intervention (2011 to present)
Since 2011, Promito Playback has offered the “No more bullying” intervention in schools. It makes it possible to flush out the situations experienced and to propose concrete actions to counter bullying.
We went to: Butler Elementary School, Farhnam Elementary school, École Niska (Opitciwan), École Saint Simon Apôtre, École Hubert Perron.
Crossing the Main: stories of French and English speakers in Montreal (2014-2015)
This project, produced by Ateliers l'Aquarium et le Globe and co-directed by Gail Marlene Schwartz and Élisabeth Couture, invited French and English speakers from Montreal to share their stories during three Promito Playback shows. English-speaking Montrealers were invited to a show in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and French-speaking people on the Plateau-Mont-Royal. The third in the series where people of all languages and cultures were welcomed to meet and share their stories took place in February 2015 at the Mainline Theater. A presentation was also given for the launch of # 4 TicARTtoc of Diversité Artistique Montréal.
Since 2012, Promito Playback has committed to give open workshops on a regular basis. The troupe also hosts periodic trainings to share knowledge of playback theater.
Training and events
The troupe continues to develop and perfect its knowledge by organizing or following more advanced trainings of international artists (Russia, United States, Brazil ...) and by organizing and participating in regional meetings in Montreal and Toronto . Some of its members also participated in the international playback theater conference in Montreal in 2015.
