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.

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:

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).
