The Freestanding Room

Founded in 2008, The Freestanding Room is a theatre co-op made up of actors, writers, directors, and producers who believe that big things can happen in small places. They like a good story and the chance to tell it fast and easy. Together they tend the Freestanding Room, an intimate space used to sharpen their tools, corral their ideas, spin their yarns, and, sooner rather than later, to invite everyone hungry for a tale told simply and authentically to come sit around their fire.

The Freestanding Room is at 4324 St-Laurent, 3rd Floor, in Montreal.

The Unsecured Present

by Vincenzo Di Nicola

Vincenzo Di Nicola’s poetry is fusion of feeling and intellect, a tryst between image and idea. It’s also distinctive for the clarity and lucidity of its language: the musicality of words on a page—and on the tongue—by which the poet gives shape and voice to an intricate spiral of thoughts and emotions.
