An exploratory workshop about creating performances outside of the norm.

About this Event

From the Artistic Director of Defiance Theatre, Louise Casemore offers an exploratory workshop about creating performances outside of the norm.

In the world of theatre creation, traditional spaces are becoming increasingly out of reach. In addition to the pandemic pause on large gatherings, our stories and audience are changing.

So what do we do?

We get creative. From the realities of offering plays in non-traditional spaces to the wonderful world of immersive theatre, this workshop will address the curiosities, questions, and process behind creating theatre in unexpected spaces from two perspectives: Producer-Brain and Artistic-Brain.

Built for emerging artists to professionals alike - find the fantastic potential in making art in the unexpected!

Artists of all experience levels and disciplines are welcome.

About the program

This iteration of AiR (Artist in Residency) sees Carla White engaging as the Fall 2020 Artist in Residence, and aims to support Carla in developing a script dramatizing the events, demographics, learnings, and community-building that arose out of the 2016 Horse River Wildfire.

Carla’s iteration of AiR will end in a stage reading of her final script, directed by Louise Casemore. Stay tuned for more updates and details.
