In 2011, Obviously, A Theatre Company, a new troop of lost misfits, created by emerging Ottawan artists, hit the Ottawa scene with a bang.
In working with young dynamic artists, Obviously strives to showcase the talents of the next generation and focus on the linguistic duality of Ottawa.
Obviously, A Theatre Company doesn't use large realist sets, expensive costumes or fancy special effects. In a world where cinema has made it possible for real life to be recreated flawlessly, Obviously chooses to put our emphasis on the organic actor and the dangers of live performance, and all this, while mixing theatre traditions from both official languages.
Obviously is local, organic and delicious theatre for the bicultural.
