In the past few years booming resource industries and a buoyant agricultural economy have transformed Saskatchewan from a “have-not” to a “have” province at the same time that most western economies have been struggling. Driven by the demand for workers and good paying jobs, Canadians from other provinces and immigrants from around the world have moved to both rural and urban communities in numbers that have not been seen since before the Depression. The wealth and increased cultural diversity of this “New Saskatchewan” has situated the arts on the threshold of potential opportunities which also come with substantial challenges. It is therefore a good time to take a close look at theatre in the “New Saskatchewan,” and consider how artists are negotiating between old and new in order to make a home for themselves and others in theatre, drama, and performance in the province. Professional theatre in rural as well as urban centres, audio drama seeking global audiences electronically, drama transforming “the rez” and the future for aboriginal youth, thriving Fransaskois theatre, theatre by recent immigrants, site-specific theatre, and improvisationally driven performance are just a few of the many faces of “New Saskatchewan Theatre.” Drawing upon the creative work of seasoned provincial artists as well as those new to Saskatchewan, this issue explores the ways in which they and others in the community are adapting theatre to make a space and a place for themselves on and beyond “the Land,” which has traditionally dominated the province’s identity.
