Nous Dérivons

Ottawa’s best kept theatrical secret may well be le Théâtre Dérives Urbaines. In fact, until the performance in English of Black Market (Marché Noir) at the National Arts Centre’s Atelier in 1988, the company’s existence went unsuspected by most of the region’s English speaking theatregoers. Not known as theatrical trendsetters, Ottawa audience have settled for a cultural life split for the most part along language lines and the interprovincial boundary of the Ottawa River. Based in Hull, Dérives Urbaines remained an Outaouais company serving West Quebec.
