“The Actors played your text with such passion and such a depth of feeling that Patricia and I were moved to tears. It was a truly memorable moment and great Theatre.“

- An open letter to Vaclav Havel from his Canadian translator, Paul Wilson.

AUDIENCE by Vaclav Havel

 

Conceived as a ‘theatrical laboratory’, Gabourie co-founded the performance ensemble, ‘the CO', in the Fall of 2000.  the CO's mandate was, 'to shift the responsibility for both the creation & production of Theatre into the hands of the ensemble'. As an ensemble, the CO explored the written word with a singular voice, while challenging traditional approaches to devised creation, text & staging. the CO productions were noted for their ‘fine ensemble work’, 'strong staging', and ‘political viewpoints'. The ensemble's adaptation of Vaclav Havel's Vanek Trilogy, Audience/Unveiling/Protest, was invited to the 2004 Pilsen International Theatre Festival, in the Czech Republic.

A superbly staged production! The nine-member cast does Odet's script justice, evoking his street slang, his layered characters, and their desire for hope, by delivering each line with passion. - Canadian Jewish News

AUDIENCE-UNVEILING-PROTEST by Vaclav Havel

An enlightened and intelligent production yet highly entertaining, a drama definitely worth seeing, seamless and clear. - NOW Magazine
