Next up: Alt Alt DIY Performance Fest

15056383_10154718691289451_4893987425844631204_nNext up for me is an original piece I will be presenting at an exciting, underground performance festival. I’ll be showcasing some works in progress from a larger piece I am currently creating. I’m calling the excerpts A Man, A Clown, A Man.

A bit about the piece (which may raise more questions than it answers): a clown comes to terms with his masculinity – or tries to – while a poet looks deeply into himself – or tries to.

The festival takes place at AKA/Paved Arts in Saskatoon January 7th and 8th, 2017. Stay tuned for the final schedule.

Details can be found here and here.

Lumsden Beach Camp

Last month I had the distinct pleasure of taking a trip to Lumsden Beach Camp and leading a theatre workshop with the youth staying there.

I was invited to stay the night and do some creation in the lovely surroundings of the camp. Below are some photos of the great Saskatchewan beauty with which I was surrounded while doing my work.

Thanks to the folks at the camp for their support and their hospitality!

2015 SATAward Nominations

I am honoured to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award again this year – and in a new category (for me)! I am humbled to be nominated for Outstanding Lighting Design for my work on Two Corpses Go Dancing (Two Unruly Gentlemen/Live Five). I’m in very good company: my classmate Jared Beattie, my collaborator (including on Two Corpses) Will Brooks, Ami Farrow, Kenilee Kelher, and Guido Tondino (very talented artists all).

Congratulations to all the nominees in every cattegory – many of whom I am pleased to count among my collaborators, mentors, and friends. See you all at the gala on September 28th!

Here are some photos from Two Corpses Go Dancing:

That play received 3 other SATAward nominations (Outstanding Performance (Female) for Jenna-Lee Hyde, Outstanding Set Design for Jenna Maren, Outstanding Sound Design for Gilles Zolty.

Compass Points at Magnetic North

Hi folks! I’ve just returned from Halifax where I participated in the Compass Points Program for Emerging Artists at the Magnetic North Theatre Festival. I met a lot of great people and saw many wonderful pieces of theatre.

The whole experience has left me inspired to deepen my practice as an artist and to get back to work on Saskatchewan Outdoors: A Touring Play for Families. To see when this show will be in a community near you, click here!

Hey folks,

The University of Saskatchewan’s drama department was just featured in an article in the Arts and Science magazine (page 15). I was interviewed for the article. It’s worth a read, for sure. Persephone Theatre Artistic Director Del Surjik also has some very interesting words on the role of the drama department (page 19).
