Three Master Classes set to go for 2016/2017 Workshops by Request: Rocky Mountain Series!
Theatre Alberta is thrilled to announce the 2016/2017 Rocky Mountain Series line-up of master classes at Banff Centre. These master classes were selected from requests made by Albertan theatre companies based on their impact on the group’s activities and development, the benefit to the greater Albertan theatre community, and how they worked together to shape a well-rounded season of professional development opportunities.
This season we will be offering the following master classes:
November 18-20, 2016 – Truth and Reconciliation Through Arts Practices: We Are All Treaty People
- Initiated by Quest Theatre, led by Troy Emery Twigg and members of Making Treaty 7.
- Participants will explore the processes used in the creation of Making Treaty 7 to develop tools and exercises for helping students connect with and understand the traditional lands they live on, and the Truth and Reconciliation Report. This is a workshop for theatre Educators.
February 10-12, 2017 – Power and Balance in Community Engaged Work
- Initiated by Inside Out Theatre, led by Sarah Garton Stanley.
Participants will be led through the creation of a brief piece that will constructively address questions and assumptions about leadership, authorship, the benefit of, the current state, and future of community-developed, mixed-ability art. This workshop is for artists who identify as disabled, community focused arts facilitators, and other professional artists.
April 28-30, 2017 – Complicite: Collaborative Curosity
- Initiated by Theatre Yes, led by Complicite (UK). Complicite is famous for distinctive performances that layer tightly choreographed ensemble work with innovative lighting, sound and video design.
- Participants will work as a team and move as a group to create images, spaces, rhythms, and atmospheres which help move stories forward.
