Commentaries

  • “Théâtre Parminou does not work like other theaters:  they come and leave the next day without much publicity, quietly, but playing to a full house. Years of existence and problems of violence, alcoholism and drugs treated with real people, always in aid of real situations. Nothing fictional, What Parminou presents is real.”
    - La Presse
  • “To begin with, I must emphasize the accuracy and effectiveness of your interventions. Through caricature, humor and realism of the actors, you have managed to provoke reflection and the positioning of each individual confronted with the problem, and this in a respectful approach that helped put people at ease. Your workshops have succeeded where other attempts at training have failed.”
    - Training coordinator, Cascades Inc.
  • “We have evaluated the various awareness strategies used in the past and we have come to the conclusion that a direct awareness approach with the target clientele seems to be the most effective strategy. This is why we decided to call upon an innovative medium: Intervention theater.”
    - Communication management, Quebec breast cancer detection program
  • “I have rarely seen such concerted praise concerning a communication product concerning the ACDI and international development. In view of such success, I can only hope that a lot of young people get the chance to discover “Chaque goutte d’eau”.”
    - Communiucations advisor, ACDI
  • "We were enthralled from every point of view by the workings of your organization. A BIG THANK YOU to all the team and long live Théâtre Parminou that agreed to lend their expertise and skills to help us move toward our common goal of achieving our zero accident objective.”

  • “You touched a sensitive note with a clientele perturbed by the phenomena of juvenile prostitution and street gangs. The reaction that we sensed far exceeded our expectations.”

  • “This performance will stand out in the history of the next 75 years of the Coopérative fédérée de Québec.”
