Board of Directors

Corinne Roche, Board President
Theatre Production Manager at Moyse Hall, McGill University
Why Theatre? “Theatre is my passion and my calling. Nothing more magical than the relationship between a performance and the audience.”
Claudia Torregrosa, Vice-President
Talent & Culture Specialist at TrackTik
Why Theatre? “Theatre is a medium to uplift unheard voices. Theatre-makers work together to select stories. They devise the best ways to tell these stories to share their very own understanding. They trigger questioning and create a vision of what could come next.”

Élodie Le Grand, Secretary
Social Responsibility Consultant
Why Theatre? “I consider theatre an interesting means to raise social issues and engage the community in discussions about social justice and social change.”

Peter Roberts, Treasurer
Producer (retired)
Why Theatre? “Compared to its tiny carbon residue, theatre powers the internal and social combustion of global imagination.”

Sonja Broomfield, Administrator
On-air graphics for Breakfast Television (BT) Montreal, at City TV
Why Theatre? “Theatre is the incarnation of our lost primal existence. It is unprotected, unsafe intercourse between sentient beings. We awkwardly reach for each other; we are always surprised when we touch ourselves.”

Dean Fleming, Administrator
Director, actor and former Artistic Director of Geordie Productions

Katherine Frohlich, Administrator
Program Director for Université de Montréal’s M.Sc. in Public Health

Micheline Chevrier, Administrator
Artistic and Executive Director at Imago Theatre
Why Theatre? “I love theatre because it is like life: ephemeral. No two days are the same, no two performances are the same. It lives in the now, it is immediate and intimate, making every moment unique.”

Andrew Katz, Administrator
Teacher, Dawson College
Why Theatre? “I see more, hear more in my everyday life because of the theatre, because the theatre has helped me to look, to listen”

Andrée Lalumière, Administrator
Visual Artist
Why Theatre? “I did not choose to become part of a theatre organization.  Imago chose me.  I was asked me to help, so I did and l believe I can still contribute to the cause.”

Adriana Palanca, Administrator
Writer, copywriter at Havas Montréal, founder of Beatrice Media
Why theatre? “Because it’s a unique opportunity to see yourself reflected in another person, in flesh and blood.”

Clare Schapiro, Administrator
Artistic Director of Singapore Creations Etc; Past Artistic Director of Imago Theatre
Why Theatre?Because theatre can nourish the soul, challenge the intellect and stimulate the imagination. It is a live, powerful podium that can expose humanity’s horror, masterfully enrich the senses, and give a much-needed voice to the silenced.”

Viviane Dohle, Advisory Committee
Production assistant at the Festival TransAmériques 

Cynthia Hammond, Advisory Committee
 Associate Professor in the Department of Art History, Concordia University
Why Theatre? “Live theatre has an immediacy that moves people to think, feel, and – more importantly than ever – to take action from whatever place of privilege or power they occupy.”
