Company in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, founded in 1963.
The company's output was focussed on texts from Quebec with occasional productions from the world repertory. Since 1992, it made an added effort to explore the texts of playwrights of the Northern Quebec region.
Among works presented there were Le Testament by Marcel Dubé (1981), Appelez-moi Stéphane by Claude Meunier and Louis Saïa (1984), Les Hauts et les bas d'la vie d'une Diva by Jean-Claude Germain (1988), Surprise! Surprise! by Michel Tremblay (1989), Le Chien by Jean-Marc Dalpé (1991), Aurélie, ma soeur by Marie Laberge (1992), and Junior by Réal Beauchamp (1995).
In 1997, Théâtre de la Poudrerie fused with the company of Théâtre de la Crique to form Le Théâtre du Tandem, with co-directors Odette Caron and Jean-Guy Côté, to realize Tandem's mission of creation, production, and diffusion of professional theatre in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and beyond. The current Artistic Director is Julie Renault.
