Artists, creators and musicians’ associations are coming back to charge following the revelation in writing that Public Health has recommended to the government since September that it allow theaters and theaters to reopen.
“It is now clear that Public Health is in favor of reopening theaters, curfew should not be a break for production or artistic distribution,” they wrote in a statement on Monday.
The performing arts and performing arts sector, which believes the “pandemic will be largely affected by the closure to the public for almost a year,” explains that the reopening will be delayed, “making it more difficult to meet.”

“The performing arts community is very diverse,” AQAD general manager Mary-Eve Gagnon said in a press release. While some major structures are not yet ready to perform, there are other types of performances that can quickly adapt and reach an audience. ”
