Description

TAP Centre for Creativity presents

Unscripted
with Keira Loughran

Friday July 6, 2018; begins at 6 p.m.
Free admission; cash bar

We are excited to welcome Keira Loughran to Unscripted, where she will be sharing her perspective and experiences in play development and bringing works to the stage. The host for this talk will be Josh Lambier, Founding Director of Public Humanities at Western and the Artistic Director of London’s Wordsfest.

*UPDATE: Jordi Mand recently found out about an exciting writing opportunity this summer, so she is no longer able to visit London and speak alongside Keira this July. We're thrilled to have Keira Loughran as our solo guest on July 6, so don't miss this talk -guaranteed to be an engaging conversation between Keira, Josh, and the audience! We have rescheduled to have Jordi here for an Unscripted afternoon on Saturday, September 29 (2-4pm).

About Keira Loughran
Hailing from Toronto, now working and raising her family with her partner in Stratford, Keira has been pushing the boundaries of Canadian theatre for over 20 years as a producer, director, actor, dramaturg and playwright with companies across the country. She currently serves as Associate Producer for the Forum and Laboratory at the Stratford Festival, spearheading organizational change through these initiatives, under Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino. Directing credits include The Comedy of Errors, The Aeneid, and The Komagata Maru Incident (Stratford Festival), Titus Andronicus (Canadian Stage Company), and Pu-Erh (K’Now Theatre) for which she was nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore award. She has been Artistic Producer of the SummerWorks Festival in Toronto from 2005-2007, founding Artistic Director of K’Now Theatre, and spent over 20 years as an actor playing leading roles in theatres across the country including Alberta Theatre Projects, Persephone Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille, Nightwood Theatre, and two seasons at the Stratford Festival. Keira has a second degree black belt in aikido which she teaches in Stratford.


About Unscripted
Expanding from our pilot “Talk & Gawk” series in 2016/2017, Unscripted is TAP Centre for Creativity’s speaker series that is free for anyone to attend. Every Unscripted event will feature a different professional in the arts, ranging from performers to musicians, writers, designers, and many more. We are excited to present a series where people can come together to hear “unscripted” stories, ask questions, and learn more about the creativity that exists in all aspects of the arts.
