Steve Bergeron La Tribune SHERBROOKE – Even if the news seemed predictable with the figures of the last few days, the disappointment is great in the Estrie cultural community. Due to constraints associated with the red zone, theaters, museums and cinemas all have to close their doors. The broadcasters are therefore showing a good big dose of good heart against this bad fortune … with a tad of incomprehension.
“We were on a roll! Already 56 performances since the reopening in July and the public responded very well! We were very often at our capacity of 190 places ”, notes Bernard Caza, artistic director of the Vieux Clocher de Magog.
“It's sad, we need these activities because people's morale is bad at the moment. Of course, if someone asked me if we should continue, I would answer yes. No positive case has occurred with us since the reopening. But if I am told that we have had too many cases in the region and that we would be almost guaranteed to have positive people in the room, we will not run after the disorder, ”adds Bernard Caza.
