I invite you all to read this essay I wrote in which I argue for changes in how we think of and speak about theatre directors. I welcome your thoughts!
Spoken Word News!
I’m thrilled to share a video I’ve been working on for some time with some wonderful collaborators. Check out this film adaptation of a spoken word piece originally included in Many Fires.
I’m also excited to share that I will be the featured poet at this month’s WORD*LAB – presented via livestream at 7:30PM (MST) on January 23rd, 2021. Get all the details here!
I’ve just had an article published in the online journal HowlRound exploring how clowning and physical comedy work online. The article specifically references my experiences directing at the Short Cuts Festival and creating clown with Oblong and Oboe.
I’m honoured to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Outstanding Original Script for Many Fires. It’s a huge honour to be recognized alongside folks I respect so much: Kim Senklip Harvey, Caleigh Crow, Jennifer Wynne Webber, and Todd Devonshire.
Congratulations to the many colleagues and friends nominated for these awards!

“There’s a lot to love… Is it a perfect production? No. Does it hit all the right emotional notes? Certainly. Peters… and the Saskatoon Opera can consider this production a dazzling success.”

Lots on the go at the moment! We’re half way through rehearsals for Saskatoon Opera‘s La Boheme. I can’t wait to share this grand production with you. The singers and designers are doing wonderful work!
In July, I’ll be heading to Victoria, BC to clown around at the SKAMpede with my original creation Lost and Alone: A Clown’s Ordeal.
Plus, rehearsals for Sum Theatre’s Queen Seraphina and the Land of Vertebraat are about to start. I had the pleasure of being involved in the devising process for this piece and I can’t wait to see it fully staged!
