You want to make new theatre. We have a program for you.
In the spotlight at PTC:
In October of 2018, Reneltta Arluk and Patti Flather took part in a research project facilitated by Nightswimming’s Pure Research wing. They were interested in discovering how languages, specifically Indigenous languages known to few people, could be part of theatrical presentations. They created and refined several live experiments to carry out over a few days. Kathleen Flaherty interviewed Reneltta and Patti about the project.
Lili Robinson is the creator/playwright of Mx, the project that won our hearts and minds in the 2019 Fringe New Play Prize competition. As we prepare for the launch of this new work on September 6 and as we solicit entries for FNPP 2020, we asked Project Dramaturg Joanna Garfinkel to interview Lili about how she perceives the process from this point just before final rehearsals begin.Joanna Garfinkel
The Vancouver Fringe Festival and PTC are calling for applications for the eighth year of the Fringe New Play Prize. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer BC artists a leg up in the process of creating and producing with material support. BC writers and producing teams with a project underway for the 2020 Fringe season are encouraged to submit.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Beneath layers of identity, can blood equal belonging? Playwright Lili Robinson with producer Shanae Sodhi discuss her 2019 Fringe New Play Prize winner Mx. The Fringe New Play Prize is a partnership between the Vancouver Fringe Festival and PTC that provides artists with dramaturgical, material, and financial support for new work. Mx premieres at the Vancouver Fringe Festival Sept. 6-15, 2019.
