Workshop: Power and Balance in DisArts
When: February 10-12, 2017.
Where: Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity
With: Sarah Garton Stanley and Syrus Marcus Ware

Theatre Alberta, in partnership with Calgary’s Inside Out Theatre and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, is offering Power and Balance in DisArts: Creative Relationship Building Across Difference — a master class for theatre and performing artists who identify as disabled and those who do not, as well as community arts facilitators. Participants will join Sarah Garton Stanley and Syrus Marcus Ware from the National Arts Centre for three days of creative relationship building across difference.

Class Description: When artists work on community-engaged projects, each collaborator brings different skills to the table. Theatre practitioners and community members bring a range of experience and training to the work. This presents like a formula for equitable exchange – but is it?

Participants will create a piece that will practically and constructively address questions such as:

  • How is leadership defined in community-engaged work?
  • How is authorship expressed?
  • How does considering equitable exchanges inform our future collaborative processes?

This is an interactive disability centred workshop about creating theatre and performance.

TUITION for this 3-day master class is $350
FULL MEAL PLANS at Banff Centre are ~$40/day
SHARED ROOMS are ~$35/person/day
PRIVATE ROOMS are ~$65/person/day

Deadline to register has been extended to January 25, 2017.

Current Theatre Alberta members in financial need are eligible to apply for financial assistance.
