World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People
For 2022, PACT in partnership with Assitej, TUEJ, ATFC, and Canada Children’s Festival Association commissioned a message to promote and celebrate World Day of Theatre for Children and Young Audiences from a Canadian perspective. This year’s message has been written by Lionel Lehouillier, author, director and actor.
Lionel Lehouillier is an author, director and actor, Lionel Lehouillier has a master degree in Theatre theory and Dramaturgy from the University of Ottawa. At the limit of theater and activism, he seeks to establish a dialogue between dramatic material and advocacy through less traditional theatrical procedures. A specialist in object theatre, Lionel signs the creations Les enfants valises, The Iliad for Dummies/L’Iliade pour les nuls and Ce pilon à patate est un demi-dieu grec.
