Announcement (Calgary): The Swallow-a-Workshop Series, Round 1 – Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre

The rad artist facilitators of The Swallow-a-Workshop Series: Round 1!

The Swallow-a-Workshop Series: Round 1!

Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre is launching a new series of collaborative, innovative, provocative workshops. They are opportunities to exchange training, practices, and ideas between artists of various disciplines. We think of these workshops as experimental art and performance labs where you can explore curiosities among peers.

To start with, we’re hosting the series in “rounds” of four 4-hour workshops. Each workshop focuses on different themes, facilitated by different artists. This is a way to get to know artists in our community, experiment with their processes, and learn what they are currently curious about! Round 1 will take place in August 2018.

If you would like to lead a workshop in a future edition of the series, contact Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre at [email protected]!

How do I join?
Reserve your spot at swallow-a-workshop.brownpapertickets.com! Drop-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is encouraged.

We highly recommend, if you can, that you participate in all four sessions of each Swallow-a-Workshop round. This way, you can get to know all the different approaches to training and challenge yourself in workshops that are not directly connected to your area of interest; this helps you to expand your toolkit outside of your comfort zone.

What should I bring?
Bring yourself, an open mind, water, pen and paper (or any electronic notation devices you use for accessibility), and clothes you can move in. Specific workshops may require additional materials or preparation; please watch for updates.

How much does it cost?
Swallow-a-Workshop participation is pay-what-you-can. The suggested workshop fee is $10 per session, or $25 for all four sessions! However, will never turn anyone away due to lack of funds! Please contribute whatever you can afford.
