Recruiting workshop and cast members for šxʷʔamət (home)

Posted on

workshop and cast members for šxʷʔamət (home) – no acting experience required
Theatre for Living is collaborating with Journey’s Around the Circle Society on our next Mainstage production in 2017, šxʷʔamət (home).  After all the proclamations, apologies, and policies from the government to address Reconciliation with indigenous people in Canada…what does Reconciliation look and feel like on the ground?  Is it just another form of assimilation? How do we ensure it is honourable?
The project will be created and performed by Indigenous and non-indigenous people living the issues, and will be directed by David Diamond, and Associate Director Renae Morriseau.  All participants and cast are paid a living wage – no acting experience is required.  The only requirement is lived experiences in the journey towards Reconciliation.
Are you interested in contributing to the process by sharing your own journey towards Reconciliation? 
Apply now to be a part of šxʷʔamət (home)!
Workshop dates: Jan 30th – Feb 4th, 2017
Rehearsals: Feb 7th – 26th, 2017
Play: 11 performances, March 3 – 11th, 2017 (with a preview on March 2nd) at the Firehall Arts Centre.
To apply, email David Ng (outreach@theatreforliving.com) , Theatre for Living’s Outreach Coordinator your application, contact information, and answers to to the two questions below:
We want real diversity in the room, so tell us who you are, and anything else you want us to know about you!
What is your journey towards reconciliation? What are the blockages that you think exist? Share with us your story, your lived experiences with Reconciliation, and what it means to you?
There is no right or wrong answer to these questions – we are looking for your own personal lived experiences and expertise.
Please share this email with any one you think might be interested in participating in šxʷʔamət (home).

Please keep in mind that the work is physical work – meaning it uses the physical language of the theatre to engage with the issues we are investigating.  It does not involve verbal storytelling/testimonials, or flipcharts J

2015 SUMMER INSTITUTE in DRAMA EDUCATION
DRAMA, LITERACY AND CREATIVITY for all learners

JULY 6-10 | UBC Vancouver

academic credit | non-credit registration option

This 5-day institute examines how drama can enhance learning experiences in multiple contexts and disciplines, through creative approaches suitable for learners of all ages, levels of ability, and cultural or linguistic backgrounds.

By combining hands-on drama-based strategies with academic literature, this course promotes engagement with learners through cognitive, kinesthetic and socio-emotional approaches.

A diverse array of drama strategies (i.e., role playing, tableaux, hot-seating) will be introduced to provide participants with additional teaching tools to better enhance their specific curriculum needs.

Seats are limited, early registration recommended.
