Saturday Salons

The Saturday Salons @ Centaur are an intimate series of conversations that delve into every aspect of theatre and feature the gifted artists who create it. 

2020 introduced a multitude of new and unexpected challenges that prompted us to find new ways to stay connected with artists and audiences, hence the birth of our online Salon series. This season, join Eda Holmes in conversation with special guests that include emerging, diverse, and established theatre creators, administrators, and policy makers.

The live Salons will be available in bi-monthly segments on our Facebook page and YouTube channel at 2PM, where all past episodes can be viewed.
