The Connexió canadenca is the second half of our exchange program between Canadian and Catalan playwrights. In 2010, Tant per Tant produced Catalan Connection when three Catalan playwrights: Pere Riera, Pau Miró and Marta Buchaca came to Saskatoon, Vancouver and Montreal to assist in the development of the translation of their plays.
