Annual Reports

A World of Performance


Up until 2013, the National Arts Centre’s annual reports had always stressed the national role the NAC plays within Canada’s performing arts universe. A World of Performance was the first annual report to feature the NAC’s international role and activities front and centre.

The Creators


Who creates the performances that you experience? This report boldly described the aspirations and artistic successes of the creators behind the work performed through the National Arts Centre.



Paralleling the concepts of the physical reconstruction of the NAC with the groundbreaking performances the NAC stages at home and across Canada, this report featured some of the most experimental and creative performance art of 2015-2016.
