Workshops

......................

There are still spots available for our two incredible workshops. Do not miss out on this opportunity to learn from and work with these incredible artists from the U.K.

‘I Confess’ with Adrian Howells

This year we are bringing Adrian Howells, renowned U.K. solo artist to Vancouver to lead a three day workshop on confessional theatre aptly titled, ‘I Confess’. This is an intensive workshop exploring the nature of confessional performance practice and its relationship to autobiographical performance. In addition to considering issues of intimacy and risk, participants will investigate what ‘acts of confession’ are, and the difference between public and private confession. Through guided activities and exercises, participants will create their own micro-confessional performance to share in the final afternoon.

Jan 24-26, 10AM-6PM
Cost: $150*

Creation with Dan Canham

We also have U.K. Dance and Theatre artist Dan Canham (DV8, Punchdrunk, Kneehigh and Fabulous Beast) leading a two day workshop. Dan has been building a body of work based on a documentary style of dance-theatre. Looking at what it is to move and to speak someone else’s words, this workshop is geared towards dancers and other artists with a physical element to their practice, and will explore playful strategies for turning found/recorded source material into fragments of performance.

Jan 23, 11AM-2PM & Jan 24, 11AM-4PM
Cost: $100*
