Tant per Tant is an international theatre company based in Saskatchewan dedicated to the translation, exchange and production of plays and theatre professionals. The mandate of Tant per Tant includes the following:
Tant per Tant believes that the most universal work comes from a strong commitment to local issues and ideas. Although the mandate has recently expanded to include plays from other regions of the world, the company concentrates firstly on plays coming from Canada, with special emphasis on Saskatchewan, and Catalonia. The company seeks the best work possible from playwrights and assists to provide them with an international arena to express their artistic voices. These plays are translated into English, French, or Catalan.
The company works with professional actors, dramaturge and director to assist in the final stages of translation and development. This includes full equity workshops and staged readings.
The company actively champions the work of the playwright and seeks the most suitable theatres in Canada, and throughout the world.
Tant per Tant works in partnership with theatres on the translation, development and production of plays. This includes direct Tant per Tant artistic involvement in the production as director, designer, or dramaturge/translator.
As well as finding opportunities for the exchange of directors and designers, one of the company’s ultimate intentions is to create productions from conception, using the skills of theatre artists from around the world.
The company conducts and exchanges master classes and workshops, with the intent of challenging and being challenged by the most innovative dramaturgical, translation, acting and directing techniques from around the globe.
