Fall Weekend Intensive

Collective Creations—Crafting a Performance Piece! will be held in London, Ontario, in mid-November 2013. This dynamic workshop will introduce and develop the tools needed to create your own theatre piece, whether it be collectively with a group or individually.

Winter Weekend Intensive

Unearthing the Classics—Bringing the Bard to Life! will be held in Toronto, early March 2014. This intensive workshop will focus on developing the vocal and physical tools necessary to bring a Shakespearean role to life. Body expressiveness, vocal dexterity and text understanding will be explored and brought into performance.

Spring Weekend Intensive

Canadian Scenes—Building Good Character! will be held in Ottawa, late May 2014. This exciting workshop will explore complex characters from the Canadian dramatic canon. Participants will develop a process to approach and study these scenes, with a focus on the intentions and motivations behind the conflict.
