About The Event
Youth ages 14-23 are invited to join us in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative performance creation process and workshop. The project combines contemporary dance, theatre, film, writing, visual art, music and crafts to explore themes related to the environment, technology and imaginative spaces. With the facilitation and mentorship of professional artists Kelly McInnes, Sophia Wolfe, Laura Avery and Red Fawkes, youth participants are invited to experience the artistic process involved in the creation of performance. Goals of the workshop are for participants to gain skills in communication and collaboration in an artistic setting, to take creative risks using imagination and embodiment, to build a sense of community and to explore important issues within our society. The project creates a space where youth feel empowered to share their stories and perspectives. In addition to the in-studio creation process, there will be performance opportunities throughout the season, which allows the participants to build upon their developing collaborative and creation skills and to share the work they are doing with their community. The project is free of cost, snacks are provided at each session. No experience is necessary!
