Company in Ville-Marie, northern Quebec, founded in 1979 by Jules Belliard to produce professional theatre involving theatre artists of the region, and to create a local dramatic literature. The company aspired towards a theatre that was simple, clear and accessible to all.
To this end it produced over 22 works including 15 premieres. Among them were: Les Célébrations by Michel Garneau (1980), Les danseurs de la fin du monde by Pierre K. Malouf (1981), Une amie d'enfance by Louis Saïa and Louise Roy (1983), Tortue by Michel Chénier (1985), Voisins-Voisines by Christian Bédard (1987), Avec le soleil...la mère (1990), Chalet à louer (1992) by Marie-Louise Nadeau and Serge Boucher, and L'Homme aux trésors by Nadeau (1995) which was toured across Quebec.
In 1997, Théâtre de la Crique fused with the company of Théâtre de La Poudrerie to form Le Théâtre du Tandem, with co-directors Odette Caron and Jean-Guy Côté to realize the mission of creation, production, and diffusion of professional theatre in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and beyond. The current Artistic Director is Julie Renault.
