Next Tuesday March 8th we're teaming up with the GCTC for a one-night beer-food-theatrical funtacular. To butcher an old phrase (see what I did there?), we believe artists feed cities. And so we're teaming up with a great restaurant and one of the most important theatre venues in the National Capital to feed theatre-goers for one great night.

 

We love Ottawa's theatre scene and it turns out theatre-goers love good beer.

Rag & Bone

Snippets is our series of staged readings. Special guests read children’s books while we animate them with “snippets” of puppetry, drama, and music. Thanks to the Community Foundation of Ottawa, we’ve been presenting these events for free at The Irving Greenberg Centre, in partnership with GCTC, since the summer of 2014. Snippets has become so popular that we’re now able to present more than one performance of each one.

It’s almost the holiday season, and it’s opening week of the GCTC’s latest show, Angel Square! I’ve been fortunate enough to have been invited into the process as Assistant Director as part of the RBC Emerging Artist Grant, and what a process it has been! A few years ago, Jan Irwin accepted the challenge of adapting this cherished novel of Brian Doyle’s. The original production was performed at the NAC 4th stage with over 30 actors. Eric Coates, Artistic Director of the GCTC, commissioned Jan to create a new version for the GCTC’s 15-16 season.

Well that was a fun night.

If you weren’t at GCTC Saturday night (it’s okay, some of you are social butterflies) then you missed the debut of an energetic and lively series from our Artistic Director Eric Coates. Along with some help from his band leader Hugh Neilson (GCTC’s Managing Director), Eric hosted the first “In the Lobby” late night talk show. “In the Lobby’ showcased the ever-increasing versatility of GCTC’s lobby, a sampling of the artists that live right here in Hintonburg, a chat with our city councillor, and much more.

When I was in grade 7, I watched a documentary with my father on the 2nd World War. Some of the images were very disturbing to me, and I was extremely upset while watching it. My father suggested that he should turn off the T.V, but I said, “No. I need to watch this.” It was that documentary that first made me truly understand what the horrors of war could look like, but it also made me appreciate fully the immense sacrifices that are made during war.

Dramaturg

The term “dramaturgy” has become a bit of a buzzword in the theatre community, and I’m sure it has some people scratching their heads. When I attended the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA) conference in New York last June, I heard someone use the term, “creative midwife”, to describe a dramaturg. I find that description both appealing and accurate. Dramaturgs can be helpful for guiding a director, writer, or artist in general through their process. We ask questions, provide research, and help an artist see the bigger picture of their work.
