Workshop: Make it Weird – Creating Outside the Box – Dec. 6

Artist in Residency & Mentorship Program

Join Louise Casemore on December 6 for Make it Weird – Creating Outside the Box.

Tickets available through Eventbrite for this FREE workshop.

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 are welcome.

Make it Weird – Creating Outside the Box is Louise Casemore’s first workshop in Wood Buffalo as part of ACWB’s Artist in Residency & Mentorship Program (AiR).

Artist in Residency follows the traditional residency model in which non-local or local professional artists spend time creating work inspired by the environment, culture and people of Wood Buffalo.

About the Artist In Residency & Mentorship Program

This iteration of AiR 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. 

Louise Casemore will direct a staged reading of White’s script to be performed in Fort McMurray with a cast of local actors on December 11. Stay tuned for updates and more information.
