IMPACT (International Multicultural Platform for Alternative Contemporary Theatre) is one of Waterloo Region’s signature events. World-class local, national, and international performers gather in downtown Kitchener for theatre that moves and speaks in new ways.
Exactly 10 years after we launched the first IMPACT Festival, we come together again to celebrate our 6th biennial which promises to be larger and more exciting than ever before. 9 international productions from three continents, 7 Canadian shows from across the country and 7 locally made works, will grace the stages of downtown Kitchener over 6 days at the end of September.
September 24 – 29, 2019 | Downtown Kitchener
15 years of filling the empty space
MT Space is dedicated to theatre that centralizes marginalized voices to address social issues and constitute a vibrant intercultural community. Founded in 2004 by Majdi Bou-Matar, MT Space has grown from producing one show every year to a touring company that also presents a season of theatre and a biennial international theatre festival called IMPACT. Now under the leadership of Pam Patel, MT Space continues to engage and challenge audiences, bringing different communities together to create a community of difference.
