Children's Theatre Exchange : Ottawa meets Montreal took place on October 29-30 th 2022, when
our friends Mosaïque de Montréal joined KingDom Theatre for an eventful weekend full of
theatre, training, performances, and incredible emotions!
DAY 1. Theatre Mosaïque de Montréal is our guest this weekend as 30 young actors get together
for Children's Theatre Exchange ! First day is full of workshops led by KingDom Theatre:
1. Ensemble Acting taught by Ekaterina Vetrov and Anatolii Gensirovskii.
2. Juggling With Scarves taught by Advanced Theatre students.
3. Mandela Dance taught by Sherazade Mami.
Moving, breathing, and creating together is the best part of the exchange!
We finished the day with the Creative Evening gathering on a rooftop where we celebrated
together, danced a flash mob coordinated by KingDom Theatre students, ate tasty food prepared
by our theatre parents, and shared stories about theatre all night long!
DAY 2. Today Mosaïque de Montréal presented their musical show "Snow White And Seven
Dwarfs" on our stage in Ottawa! It was an incredible day with lots of applause, productive
critical discussions between students of both theatre, backstage work, interviews, and of course
From this exchange I brought back friends that became family, memories I will never forget, and
many new skills that I got to learn from my peers.

I found the exchange super fun because the whole weekend we all felt connected like good
friends, even though we have just met. My favourite part about the entire exchange was how we
all understood each other and felt comfortable because we are connected by one wonderful thing:
theatre! It felt so great to finally meet people who share interests with you and actually listen and
respond with their own stories and experiences.
