The journey of Elephant Wake has been a long one or, at the very least, longer than the typical stage production of a standard piece of Canadian theatre. Starting in 1996 it has played everywhere from a converted curling rink to the Tron Theatre in Scotland. Throughout that time and even today Elephant Wake continues to develop. From staging to script, it remains a fluid piece of work that adapts to its playing space and the artistic sensibilities of its core creators, Joey Tremblay and Bretta Gerecke.

What are the possibilities that come with continuing the developmental process long after a show’s first opening night? How do you continue to rework and develop a show over the course of many years?
Joey and James will unlock all these mysteries and more for your edification. Don’t miss it!
