Since there has been a theatre, there have been stagecraft elements—theatre technologies—and over the centuries both have developed and evolved in lockstep, influencing and affecting one another.
~All Stages Editor, Frazer Andrews
The Winter 2014 edition of All Stages Magazine will be arriving in Theatre Alberta members’ mailboxes this week! In this issue, we take a look at different theatre technologies, both old and new, that the Alberta theatre community has explored and employed in its work around the province.
Contributions for this issue include:
- A chat with Jennie Esdale in Community Profile about Green Fools Theatre, puppetry, and Calgary’s new West Village Theatre.
- Ann Salmonson outlines new technologies that could change the way costume designers and wardrobe artisans operate in The Cutting Edge?.
- We found some unique examples of older stagecraft elements in the Bailey Theatre in Camrose and Fedorah Hall in Fedorah with the Antique Tech Roadshow.
- In The Process, Jon Lachlan Stewart breaks down the technical elements of Surreal SoReal’s The Genius Code.
- In Foils, we caught up with T. Erin Gruber and Matthew Waddell who tell us how they see the current state of lighting, projection, and sound design.
- All Stages Technical Editor Scott Peters chats with industry professionals Paul Bezaire, Betty Hushlak, and Mike Takats on the use of ubiquitous—everyday—technologies in Q2Q.
- And, in our Opinion feature, University of Lethbridge Props Master Steve Benson tells us how the recent trend of Makerspaces Can Help Theatre.
