I’m back from a weekend in a basement with strangers

Picture1Yes I know, I totally disappeared there. Sorry about that. Last week was all about constructing the presentation for my biggest workshop to date – a full weekend with Theatre Kingston. Excellent combo of going home and working.

It was a great weekend – we were in a classroom in the basement of Jeffrey Hall, there were about ten of us and we spent from 10 til 6 Saturday and Sunday talking about social media and traditional marketing and actually having conversations about the work we do and it was just great. So you must check out the following:

 

Theatre Kingston – Kingston, Ontario’s professional theatre company – bringing Canada’s great plays and performers to Kingston, and Kingston to Canada

The Kingston Theatre Alliance – made up of 5 Kingston based theatre companies that first formed in 2012 to produce “The Library Chronicles”

Single Thread Theatre CoA Found-space theatre company

Domino Theatre– has a full seven-play winter season. Each season offers an appealing mix of drama, comedy and mystery from the Canadian and world stages.

Blue Canoe Theatrical Productions Inc. –  youth non-profit organization striving to create opportunities for young performers between the ages of 13-30 in the performing arts

Grand Theatre – Kingston’s premier performing arts venue, bringing world-class performers and artists to your local stage.

Empty Box Theatre – a company that emphasizes storytelling and challenges traditional audience-performer relationships. We are interested in re-staging the classics and creating new collaborative plays. Our work often looks at gender politics, camp, wordplay, mythical and historical themes.

Cindy Johnson – specializes in custom designing of jewellery in silver, gold, platinum, palladium and bronze. (and repairs too!)

Thanks to all of them for a really great weekend!
