Artistic Mission & Philosophy

Imago Theatre produces thought-provoking works that
reflect women’s voices and stories of our times.

Imago showcases playwrights of our times.
We produce plays that address current issues and represent the female experience and perspective. We seek strong, unique voices and works with a social conscience. Every play Imago produces fosters conversation, encourages reflection and provokes change.

Imago’s productions reflect Montreal’s diversity.
Our work transcends the cultural, linguistic and class barriers that hinder people’s perceptions of each other. We give a voice to those who have become isolated, misunderstood or marginalized, either by including them in our operational activities or by putting their stories on stage.

Imago places the artist at the center of its work.
We value creative freedom, provide opportunities for new partnerships and support the artistic process within a safe, healthy and professional environment. Through every Imago production, emerging or established artists are given the opportunity to learn and expand their practice.

Imago is resilient, ambitious and realistic.
Notwithstanding our limited financial and physical resources, Imago has persevered for the past 26 years, evolving our dialogue with the Montreal community.  As a responsive leader, we look ahead with great anticipation towards creating an increased impact on the Montreal theatre scene.
