TNB and the Fredericton Playhouse Partner for New Professional Theatre Training Initiative.
(Fredericton) Theatre New Brunswick has partnered with The Fredericton Playhouse to present an exciting training opportunity for emerging and experienced theatre artists, exploring aspects of physical theatre and devised creation.
Under the direction of TNB’s Artistic Director Thomas Morgan Jones, participants will train from August 10-15, 2015 finishing with a public performance at the Fredericton Playhouse.
“In Fredericton alone there are over half a dozen independent companies creating invigorating, exciting, and impassioned new theatre,” said Jones. “Across Canada, too, emerging and established artists are creating their own work in physical or devised processes. This training is an answer to what is already happening. It is a laboratory where we can question why and how these processes work, how they can work, and to challenge ourselves to create with expertise, with abandon, and as an expression of our unique voice. We look forward to welcoming artists from across the country to enter into this conversation in workshop, in process, and to creating a stunning new interpretation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Macbeth.”
Participants will gain experience creating and communicating with their bodies as tools to tell stories. They will learn how to create quickly, efficiently, expertly, and freely with other artists. They will be given the tools to then repeat and re-create with confidence.
This call is open to all actors, directors, and theatre artists in Canada. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, resume, and headshot. Applications will be accepted upon receipt of a $100 non-refundable deposit. Deadline for applications – July 10, 2015. The full fee for the workshop is $250+HST.
