Because of financial constraints, the number of performances of the new piece of Steve Gagnon is expected in the Periscope in January will be reduced. Originally scheduled from 14 to 21 January, “For there to be a beginning to your language will be” played from January 21 to 25.

“The envelope of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) are greatly insufficient, more and more shows, yet programmed in the season in of the diffusers, without the support of the CALQ and the majority of the time, it’s the artists who suffer the consequences, by accepting a salary and working conditions inadequate. Not having obtained the financial support expected, and wanting to protect the artists of his production, Theatre, Jesus, Shakespeare, and Carolina must reduce the number of performances in Quebec city,” said Steve Gagnon, who signs the text and the staging of the show, by way of a press release.

Inspired by the world of the writer Sylvain Trudel, For there to be a beginning to your language has been presented in Montreal in spring.
