In the spotlight at PTC:
Kathleen Flaherty (Dramaturg Emeritus/Project Dramaturg) talks with Davey Calderon (Dramaturg, Public Engagement) about how he keeps track of what his body does as he devises new work through exercises and improvisations.
November 19-29, 2020, Digitally Streaming Online. PTC is excited to support the independent launch of JK JK’s Catalina La O Presenta: Ahora Conmigo. Originally selected as the Fringe New Play Prize winner, Catalina is being released digitally outside of the festival context to respond to the creative opportunities and challenges of the pandemic. The independent production, set in an abandoned television studio, translates beautifully to the screen. With the support of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Digital Originals, JK JK has crafted a digital theatre experience that brings the best of both media together.
PTC, in collaboration with rice & beans theatre, will hold its Annual General Meeting on Monday, December 7, 2020 at 7:30pm, online. Register now!
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
For the entire month of November, our friends at Neworld Theatre are presenting Remember November: A Time Capsule Project. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s 610 time capsules, they encourage curious persons to join them in creating time capsules reflective of what is happening for them. Remember this year, not necessarily for the headlines and the hardships but for the unique day-to-dayness of it. Follow Neworld’s social media (@neworldtheatre) on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter for daily inspirational prompts of what to put in your time capsule and share your experience with this organic community of time capsulers using hashtags #timecapsule2020 #neworldnovember #neworldtheatre
Congrats to all of the shortlisted Siminovitch Prize for Theatre nominees, especially Carmen Aguirre (PTC Associate 2013-16) whose groundbreaking body of work inspires and moves us! We were thrilled to be involved in the development of Carmen's "Anywhere But Here", the largest Latinx play in history to premiere on a Canadian mainstage. And happy birthday, Carmen – you are a gift to Canadian theatre.
