Creation Lab - with Donna-Michelle St. Bernard

Sunday August 12 to Friday August 17, 2018

There are so many stories that deserve to be told, but where do you begin? How do you link visceral and intellectual impulses, personal and political ideas, the actual and the imagined through theatre? Donna-Michelle St. Bernard leads a creation-driven workshop for anyone looking to strengthen their storytelling savvy and explore both collaborative and solo staging techniques. Be your own protagonist or dive into imagination to create NEW theatre work for today’s audiences!
