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!

Essay Published

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.

SATAward Nomination

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!

“Saskatoon has lots to be proud of and lots to work on. Saskatoon could afford to build more (figurative) bridges.”

“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.”

Upcoming

Clown Close UpLots 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!

 

 

January

January will be a big month! Lots of applications and submissions (including one I handed in just this morning!). But most importantly, I invite you to check out Sum Theatre’s Theatre on the Trail.

Over the past few months I have had the privilege of working with a very talented group of Indigenous and Newcomer artists as they reflected on what it means to be connected to the land and to be treaty people. I am very proud of the resulting work which you can see as part of the Winterruption Festival January 18th to 20th.

October Happenings

This month is chock full of things!

First up is Chalk House on October 12th, where I’ll be doing some clown in an intimate house-concert style performance alongside the amazing spoken word poet Isaac Bond. _mg_6167

After that will be the Short Cuts Festival from October 13th to 15th, at which I’ll be directing a play called Street Corner Playwright by Kenneth T. Williams.

Finally, late in the month a production on which I’ve been working for several months will debut for Saskatoon audiences. Since the Spring I’ve been working with storytellers and the fine folks at It’s Not A Box to create the latest iteration of a pod-play (iPod-based play) called Overhear that will run later in the month. Stay tuned for details.
