Our speakers will deliver short academic presentations as part of inFORMING CONTENT. This year's theme is Missives from the Future. These presentations will serve as a catalyst for experimental theatre creation. Presentations begin at 6:30 PM.

inFORMING CONTENT is a two-day workshop combining experimental approaches to theatre-making with expert academic presentations on the world-of-the-moment. The workshop aims to expose young theatre-makers to forms of creation that are outside the scope of most traditional training in Canada. We strive to challenge artists to collaborate with academic experts in performance creation. By doing so, we institute a dialogue that will allow these new forms to mirror, prod at, and in some cases explode content.
The 2016 speakers are
Suvendrini Lena, neurologistic and researcher at CAMH
Alanna Mitchell, award-winning science journalist
Lee Maracle, First Nations poet, author and scholar
Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist and co-founder of the Perimeter Institute

When & Where
Volcano is an international, award-winning theatre company based in Toronto. We create art that is at once stylistically and socially modern, and vividly accessible and entertaining - a combination that makes for great theatre. Our work boldly explores identity, politics, history - all the ingredients that make up the world today - from the internationally informed perspective of 21st century Canada. We create art by synthesizing styles and skills from across art forms, genres, and geographic boundaries; assembling local, national, and international artists in one of the world's most dynamic cultural hubs to craft compelling stories. Led by Artistic Director Ross Manson, Volcano has been a vital contributor to Toronto's theatre scene for almost twenty years, and continues to redefine what it means to produce outward-looking, innovative theatre.
